    In my test lab, I've successfully performed an ASR on my HP LC2000 /w 4mm
    DAT, so I think I know what I'm doing. BUT trying to ASR a Compaq Proliant
    with DLT VS80 it wont work. Heres the steps: After I install the OS and run
    ASR ntbackup, it creates floppy and image on the DLT. I delete the
    partition, boot with the W2K3 OS CD ROM, press F6 (to identify my HP Smart
    Array 641 controller) then press F2 to start the ASR recovery. Everything go
    fine until the ntbackup portion is requesting the media. The DLT is in the
    drive and I press enter but the request screen keeps up asking me to insert
    the media. I've checked the sif files on the floppy and verified it's
    looking for the DLT VS80 tape drive. BTW the DLT is an internal drive.

    As a follow up it seems that in ASR NTbackup is not mounting the tape drive.
    Is it possible I need to load a driver (F6) for the tape drive? If anyone is
    using Compaq + DLT (value 80) with ASR please advise. Thank you much!
