drivers

i hate to say it, but google failed me. i am looking for drivers for a LSI logic pcbx520a2 scsi card. I'll need the drivers to use in windows XP pro setup ( dont ask, long story ). Any ideas? I did go to LSI logics site, but cant find this card there.

It sounds like a Dell-branded LSI MedaRaid 520 U320 card. Unfortunately, Dell is notorious for taking the retail version of server cards and crippling them with custom firmware and modified drivers, and only work on supported Dell servers. Flashing the retail firmware on them won't help, either.

Not a great idea, but usually the Server 2003 (non-storport) driver will work fine on Windows XP. Does the Dell driver for the server have this driver?

It's a Dell PERC4/SC card. You can try this:

Another user with an XP system used this with that card and it worked fine. That said, this card is unsupported on Windows XP. Seeing as this is in the "Exchange" category, I would note that this should not be used in a production environment under any circumstances. I know you said you had your reasons, but I think that note needed to be said again.
