Pinned topic Severguide 9.4 install Windows 2003 STD R2 64bit with x3650M4

‏2013-08-07T07:39:01Z |

Dear All,

Serverguide 9.4 could select Windows 2003 Standard 64bit R2 to install with x3650M4.

It could be completed install Windows 2003 but there is still one device cannot be recognised.

Moreover, internal DVDRW could not be used properly.

Is there any recommendation?

    Hi,

    Try running UpdateXpress to see if it can detect the device and perhaps provide the missing driver. Just an option.

    Realizing this might be a stretch since 2003 isn't mentioned specifically, but in the recent ServerGuide 9.41 release, the following is mentioned in the changelog for this new version and the readme:


    "   - When using ServerGuide to deploy Windows Server 2008/2012 on System x3650 M4 Type7915,
         System x3650 M4 HD Type5460, System x3550 M4 Type7914 and System x3500 M4 Type7383,
         a yellow exclamation mark may be present on "Inter Chipset Device" in the Device Manager.

         To resolve this issue, please manually run the device driver "intc_dd_inteldp_9.3.2.1009_windows_32-64.exe"
         under "C:\IBMSGTK\uxsp\
    ".
    "

     

    In addition, this is mentioned in the readme, specifically for IDE devices such as an optical drive:

     

    "A yellow exclamation mark may be present next to IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers
       when there is no physical internal DVD drive connected. Despite the warning,
       the device is still functioning properly.

       To solve this problem,
       from uEFI setup, change the mode from AHCI to IDE as below.
            * Goto uEFI setup (F1)
            * System setttings
            * Device & I/O Ports
            * Configure the onboard SATA   <Select IDE>
            * Save and reboot.
    "

    Maybe trying either a) using this new version or b) attempting the work-around mentioned in the readme to load the Intel chipset device drivers, and/or c) following the work-around for the IDE device, might resolve your issues?
