    I tried building an XP SP3 UBCD and a Windows Server 2003 UBCD but no matter what I try, UBCD won't ever detect my Compaq SmartArray volumes. I've got two servers, a Compaq Proliant DL360 and an HP Proliant DL360 G4P. The Compaq uses an integrated Compaq SmartArray Controller while the other uses a SmartArray 6i Controller.

    I even tried downloading the drivers onto a floppy but UBCD still won't recognize the drives.

    Can someone please help??

      The UBCD4Win (UBCD is a completely different project) contains the BTS mass storage driver pack, or at least a little older version of it. Mostly, all of the drivers are for XP, not server 2003 (as far as I know), so you may have issues when building the CD using a Server 2003 CD. Using an XP SP3 CD is still NOT recommended as XP3 is still new and may cause problems. Using an XP SP2 CD should be just fine. If it doesn't recognize the drive, try using the latest BTS Mass Storage driver pack, OR you can add the drivers yourself to the drivers folder. Search the forums for help there... :)

        Thanks! The BTS Mass Storage drivers worked!
