I have a Biostar TF8200 A2+, which uses the NVIDIA nForce SATA RAID Controller, and I am trying to install Windows Server 2008 64 bit Standard edition onto a 2.72 TB RAID Array.

The drivers that came with the MOBO are only for Vista 32/64 bit or XP 32/64 bit.

When trying to load the RAID driver during installation I get this error message:

"To continue installation, use the Load Driver option to install 32-bit and signed 64-bit drivers.  Installing an unsigned 64-bit device driver is not supported and might result in an unusable Windows Installation."

I have followed the steps provided by Microsoft:
KB954701

Anyone know how to load these drivers correctly?

For now I have accepted the fact that the there are no drivers that support Server 2008.

nVidia offers some 64-bit Windows 7 drivers. Have you tried them?

Also, although it's for Server 2003, did you try the method in this article?

I haven't tried these drivers, but they seem to be as close to server 2008 drivers of all the ones I've seen.
