Hi,

We just bought a new Dell server, installed windows server 2008 and all is fine, but in the device manager I notice that there is a "System Interrupt Controller" without any drivers.

Exactly what is a System Interrupt Controller and where do I get drivers for it? It would not accept my windows 2008 server cd and Dell has no mention of such a driver on their site.

Does anyone know?

Have you try the latest chipset driver from Dell dated 4/22/2009 and version 9.1.0.1012 A00 ?
