Bottom line solution
This controller is compatible with server 2008.
1. Need to update the controllers to the newest available on the Dell web site.
2. If an inplace upgrade is desired, then a patch is required from the Dell site for this controller.

AS long as there's a driver, yes.

could you specify the raid controller details clearly like manufacturer, Model and the server in which you are using

as per the below link the compatability metrix shows only support on 2003 and 2008 is not listed

http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/downloads/en/compatibility?c=us&l=en&s=gen&~mode=popup&releaseid=R78574

the below link will give you the details of OS and the controller

i think we need to check with dell so that they may give the driver supported for the controller on 2008
