IBM ServeRAID 4H Controller 4.84.1.0 Driver needed - will pay !

Hello guys,

We have a dead server on our hands that urgently needs rebuilding and a member of my team is trying to source a IBM ServeRAID 4H Controller 4.84.1.0 driver for the RAID controller ... it seems very old and IBM have taken it off the site.

We will pay for this driver as we are desperate !

Anyone help ? Would any other driver do ? (I'm not expert on this - this one isn't my c*ck up, but I'm the one with the EE account!)

Thanks so much

hey ChuckyH ,... funnily enough I was trying the 2nd one when you replied with the 1st ... i've now got them both coming down - gonna take a while.

I'm pretty sure all he needs is a 100 .inf file :)

fingers crossed ...

Good news ! My 'client' got the server back using a copy of UltimateBootCD and the RAID drivers you pointed to .. (I had to instruct how!) ... long, long story, but let's just say I thought I'd see it all until I met this hosting company that backs-up SQL databases to the same server and lets RAID 5 arrays continue with one failed drive for 4 months ...

Somehow out of the woods and panic over.

New Hosting company being sought ...

Thanks for the help mate ... I'm pretty sure this is the only resource left on the net for this old driver !

If anyone is needing this driver in future (you never know...)

a) download the .iso image and burn to CD

b) Copy  tools\dsk4w32.exe and the "win2k_xp.img" (or whatever OS you require) to an easy to get to location like "c:\raid"
c) bring up CMD and browse to "c:\raid"
d) type "dsk432.exe c:\raid\win2k_xp.img E:" <<< note the E: is a (USB?) floppy drive location

Viola - a serveRaid 4H driver ... pretty much the only one I could find on the internet !

- What Iso did you download?  I can't find these files on either of the MIGR downloads referenced above.

Thank you,

Disregard, found on the serveraid 7.00 disk.  Extracting to floppy now, couldn't get it to extract to USB.  Hopefully this works:)
