Trying to install nw 6.5 sp8 from an overlay cd on a brand new hp dl380. Downgraded the p410i firmware to 1.66 and am using the hpqciss.ddi and hpqciss.ham from psp-8.20.nw.i386.zip software support pack downloaded from the hp site as recommended on this forum.

Gets as far as trying to load the cdrom and fails. I have tried the sata drivers and the ide drivers and I don't know what else to try now.. The cd reads fine in my pc and other cd's put into the server fail to load also.

The cd/dvd drive is the correct one for this system ordered direct from hp and it boots the nw install cd just fine... just wont load it as a volume. (cd? what cd?)

Assistance, is requested and appreciated.
