Installing W2K3 Srv on Adaptec 2200S (Perc 320) on Dell PowerEdge
Posted on 2006-05-15
I want to install Windows 2003 Server on a PowerEdge SC1420.
That system has an Adaptec 2200S SCSI raid adapter.
Unfortunately, the drivers are not located on the Windows setup disk.
I tried to manually load them from a floppy, but either I got the wrong floppy, or I'm doing it wrong.
I downloaded the normal drivers from adaptec and unzipped the thing to floppy.
When I press F6 to load manually, I have to put in the disc, put it still keeps repeating I have to insert the disk provided by my hardware manufacturer. So, I think Windows does not find the correct files on it.
Anyway, I can't get Windows to see my disks (4 in Raid 5) and I have to quit setup all the time.
A cure somebody ??
