I am having an issue installing Netware 6.5 sp7 overlay CD to an IBM x3560 Server MT 7979. When ever I try to install I get as far as the Storage Driver screen and the install will not take the driver (aacraid.ham) created by the IBM raid support 9 cd.

When I try to load the raid driver I go through the normal procedure by pressing F3 and ins. After I hit enter for search the a:\ this is where the system hangs for 1 to 4 minutes. Then I get a dialog box without any visible driver name. Usually I would see the driver name and an option for slot configuration, but that is not happening.

I thought I had a bad floppy and or floppy USB drive, I swapped both with no change.

I contacted IBM and was told to use Netware 6.5 SP5 Overlay CD, that didn't work.

I also tried the Netware 6.5 SP6 overlay CD, that didn't work.

I am not sure what the issue could be. I am leaning towards disabling one of the quad cores and will try that first thing tomorrow.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you,
