How can I find the Windows Server 2008 driver files for the Adaptec CERC SATA1.5/6ch?


OK, EZPZ.
These drivers will install when you first start installing windows 2008 server. You'll see a option that says: Hit F4 for any further drivers needed for windows to install. I think it's F4. You can place these drivers on a thumb drive OR a CD - you must extract the files on to a thumb drive. At the very start of the windows install you'll see the option for additional drivers.

First screen - Success
24930663-deewisxuy4wetc5wzbekciyz-2-1.png
SCSI - Yes, that is correct. Correct, but This isn't a SCSI controller

If you choose the SCSI driver from Dell, on the disk, you won't get...
24930663-deewisxuy4wetc5wzbekciyz-2-6.jpg
This screen. This screen means that windows could not find any driver for your drive and there for, you must start over - Same steps.
But make sure you choose the correct driver - you might have to try a few that are in the list.

Greatest of luck - EZPZ

Hi guies the windows srever 2003 files in my hp ml370 is corrupt and i tried to fix the prblem by format one hard disk partition in my scasi disks array and installing win srv 2003 on it but whe i log on...


HP SmartStart CD x32
The utility to use to set up the ML370 g3 server is the SSCD (smart start cd) this is a guided installation cd that will help you set up the array, install drivers and diagnostic utilities and after that
will request the windows cd so that you can finish the installation.
instructions:
1. download SSCD from here
2. extract the zip file
3. burn the ISO image to a cd
4. boot the server to the cd
5. choose from the main menu the option "Deploy server"
6. follow the wizard

You need to load the RAID driver for your controller. Go to Adaptec's website and download the 2003 driver for it. You will put the files on a floppy disk and load them at the F6 prompt during Windows Setup (right after it boots from CD). If you don't have a floppy drive/disk, then use nLiteOS.com to integrate the drivers (text-mode) into your installation media.

Hi. We have a ML110 server with RAID 5 (4x250gb HD SATA) in a Adaptec 2610SA. The RAID has 2 Arrays (#00 Operating System and #01 Data). We have tried to replace a failed HD and since then the Windows...


Did you make sure that your hard drive has been made into a "dynamic volume" instead to the usual "simple volume"? It has to be "dynamic" before your can put it into a RAID configuration. You will have to use your RAID Controller to create a dynamic volume or to make the hard drive part of a dynamic volume.

Run Compaq Array Configuration Utility


Hi Foambob,

Try all means to get a smartstart CD.
Normally new version will be able to use on older hardware , but no guarantees.
I have always found it easier to use smartstart CD auto mode.
You can also do the install and then run ntssd to update all the drivers etc., but I don't recommend it for novices. Use the auto mode , it takes longer but safely and surely.

Good luck

I can´t use a serial ata disk in a proliant 350


I know ATA disks are cheaper , but they don't last as long or are less reliable.

I do not recommend mixing SCSI and ATA .

Use one or the other , not both.

Do not try , unless your server is non critical.
If it is non critical , why bother with server , a PC will do as well.

Thanks
David

SCSI BIOS not installed / ML150G2, exchanged mainboard, RAID


hi..
my guess is no but since i haven't dealt with this type of server i'm going to suggest you go to hp.
if you just goto hp.com and search on live chat and a link will come up.. they should be able to help unless it's too old since i'm not sure what generation we are on now..

good luck, hope this helps a little..d
