Hi there experts;

We currently have got a new Intel Workstation / Server board: Intel S5000XVN it has got the Intel® Embedded RAID Technology II which enables you to raid the sata drives. The problem is that INTEL have not released any drivers for the board for Vista 64, we have tried to use all the xp and 2003 drivers but they dont even show up during the setup. Have tried a couple of other drivers that were Vista 64 compatiable and they did show up when we browsed for them in the setup.

I was wondering if anyone has encountered this and if so what they did, much appreciated guys

If you look at the bottom of the page:

¹ Intel® Embedded RAID 0, 1, 10 and 5 support for Microsoft Vista* is not available at launch.

Unless someone has hacked the XP drivers for use on Vista, you are out of luck. Even if they have, do you really want to trust your RAID array to a user's own drivers? Best bet would be to get a PCI RAID card that definately has Vista support. Try here for a list of certified controllers:

All I could suggest then is emailing Intel bugging them for drivers, but how long that will take is anyones guess.

What Is Threat Intelligence?

Threat intelligence is often discussed, but rarely understood. Starting with a precise definition, along with clear business goals, is essential.

As the driver is currently under development.

My answer to your question, I tried all available drivers, even downloaded ones from LSI-logic. Currently there is no solution except waiting for intel to release the drivers or switch to SATA mode.
