Hi All,
I need to make a Windows 2000 Professional intallation on a Dell Vostro 1310 with Sata Raid controller, but it seems I miss the drivers for it.
I've tryed to use the 32-bit Floppy Configuration Utility for Intel® Matrix Storage Manager version 5.7.0.1011 and  5.5.0.1035 that Intel report as w2k compatible, but no one of drivers that we used seems to work. I've found the drivers at the following URL (point 3 and 4):

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/filter_results.aspx?strTypes=all&ProductID=2101&OSFullName=Windows*+2000&lang=ita&strOSs=19&submit=Vai%21 

In fact during the installation of Windows 2000, after the first boot we go for F6 to provide the controller's driver, we select one each one on the list but none seems to be good for the controller, and the discovery of the hard disk fail so the installation...
The laptop I'm using is a Vostro 1310 : Intel Core 2 Duo T9300 (2.5GHz,800Mhz,6MB), with chipset Intel's GM965 / PM965 and BIOS Phenix vertion A06.
Can someone suggest where to find a compatible driver, or suggest me if is better to upgrade/downgrade to a new/old BIOS vertion, so to disable the RAID that seems to block the installation? In this case please send me the information where to find the new/old BIOS, and how to install it on the Dell...
Thanks for your assistence!
