Dear All Experts,

Any one used install Window 2003R2 on Sun Fire X4100M2 successfully?

I try to install Window 2003R2 on Sun Fire X4100M2 got problem as below:

setup did not find any hard disk drives installed in your computer.

Make sure any hard disk drives are powered on and properly connected to you computer,
and that any disk-related hardware configuration is correct. This may involve running a
manufacturer-supplied diagnostic or setup program.

Setup cannot continue. To quit Setup, press F3.


Please kindly give advice for this.


Thanks regards,
Vand

    The documentation for your system:
    http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E19121-01/sf.x4100m2/

    The MS Windows Server 2003 Installation guide (PDF):
    http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E19121-01/sf.x4100m2/820-5837-10/820-5837-10.pdf
    states on the first page of its instructions that...
    The Sun Fire X4100 M2 or X4200 M2 server requires mass storage drivers not included with the Windows Server 2003 operating system. For Windows Server 2008, the required mass storage drivers are included with the Windows Server 2008 distribution media.
    and then the document proceeds to guide you to use the DVD that shipped with the X4100M2.

    If you have lost that DVD disk, you will need MOS credentials to log a SR and request that Oracle ship you a replacement copy of the media.
