config a compaq array 3200 in a non compaq pc?

  1. How can I install a Compaq smart array controller 3200 on a non-Compaq
    machine?

    I recently acquired (was exchanged for an old computer) a Compaq smart array
    controller and some drives. All the installation instructions for it refer
    to using the
    Compaq smartstart utility. However this won't work on a non-Compaq machine,
    and when I power on the PC I get an error msg saying that the array is not
    configured.

    What can I do to get it working as the boot array for a W2000 installation?

    Thanks.

    You need the Array Configuration Utility (HP download under Proliant
    servers) and the Array driver , CPQArray.SYS (download on same page ,
    choose all software and search) , configurable when the NOS is
    installed .
