bartpe with ibm X series 3650.

bartpe not working with ibm X series 3650.  I'm trying to use barpe to boot up and run ghost on this system.  bart does not recognize the LSI megaraid SAS controller.  How can I have Bart load the driver?

Here is an example:

Assume you are adding a network driver from broadcom, the NetXtreme BCM57xx. That driver comes as a .zip file called win_xp_2k3_32-7.86.zip. Now you create a new folder "b57xp32" (you can take any name you want) in drivers\Net to hold this driver. Extract the driver .zip file in this new folder and you are done.

This is how the drivers folder should look like:

drivers\Net
drivers\Net\b57xp32
drivers\Net\b57xp32\win_xp_2k3_32
drivers\Net\b57xp32\win_xp_2k3_32\b57win32.cat
drivers\Net\b57xp32\win_xp_2k3_32\b57win32.inf
drivers\Net\b57xp32\win_xp_2k3_32\b57xp32.sys

You need to add the drivers to the drivers folder and BartPE will pick them up autmatically.

Here is whats needed for storage:

Storage drivers are added by pebuilder using their txtsetup.oem file. As a txtsetup.oem file can hold several drivers, you should edit this file and exclude the drivers you don't want to use from the [SCSI] section.

Example:

Assume you are adding a storage driver from adaptec, the Ultra320. The driver comes as a self-extractable .exe file called u320_fms300s4_win.exe. Now you create a new folder "adpu320" (you can take any name you want) in drivers\SCSIAdapter to hold this driver. Extract the drivers from the self-extractable .exe file in this new folder. Open the file drivers\SCSIAdapter\adpu320\TXTSETUP.OEM in a text editor and search for the [scsi] section, exclude drivers that are not for Windows XP/2003, for example Windows NT 4.0 or Windows 2000. Also exclude drivers that are not compatible with your processor architecture.

Here is a piece of the txtsetup.oem file:

...
[scsi]
#a79xxNT40 = "Adaptec Ultra320 SCSI Cards (Win NT 4.0)"
#a79xxNT50 = "Adaptec Ultra320 SCSI Cards (Win 2000)"
a79xxNTIA32 = "Adaptec Ultra320 SCSI Cards (Win XP/Server 2003 IA-32)"
#a79xxNTIA64 = "Adaptec Ultra320 SCSI Cards (Win XP/Server 2003 IA-64)"
#a79xxNTAMD64 = "Adaptec Ultra320 SCSI Cards (Win Server 2003 AMD64)"

thanks, exactly what I was looking for......

However, after I located and included the drivers in the /drivers/SCSIAdapters/ folder compiled and burned a new pe cd........ I get the following error when bartpe starts to load:

The file msas2k3.sys could not be found, press any key to reset your computer..

the file is in fact in the drivers/SCSIAdapters/w2k3x86  dir  I've included the txtsetup.oem contents below

Thanks,

Andy

also note that architecture is x64, but I assume using the x86 driver would be correct given bartpe's 32 bit environment...

Can you zip and upload the driver here?

aenticeAuthor Commented:
Commenting out the 2000 driver in the .oem file results in only the win2k3 driver being sliped into the build.  I see the file in the system32\drivers directory on the bart cd, yet I get the same can not find msas2k3.sys error

updade:  I built a new bart cd with server 2k3 source files and the machine now boots all the way up, however it still does not see the drives.

SnibborgOwnerCommented:
Are you getting any errors associated with this?  I presume that the server is working normally and this is something you are trying to do as a contingency or for imaging?

There is a way to press F6 key when loading BartPE so to feed it with drivers. Does it work with your drivers with this way? Just to check if you use correct driver.
Also is there Windows 2003 installed on this server? If yes then is there driver for LSI controller already installed in Windows?

aenticeAuthor Commented:
The server is working fine, brand new and fresh install of 2008 Server Standard.   Yes this is for imaging.

I don't have a floppy to use with the F6 option.....

noxchoGlobal Support CoordinatorCommented:
The only idea is that your driver is wrong.
What imaging tool is used by you? Have a look on Paragon Drive Backup 10 Server Edition: www.drive-backup.com
It has WinPE2.1 Recovery CD with complete backup\restore\partition etc options on it. That should work for you.

I don't think ghost is the problem,  I'm just trying to see the drives from a BartPE boot disk.  I haven't even gotten to ghost yet  

I believe the driver is correct.....this is a brand new server and this is the driver cd that came with the hard ware and I used in SRVR 2008 without a problem.

Have you tried downloading a newer driver from the web and seeing if that works?

The general link is here, but I'm not sure which specific model you have:

noxchoGlobal Support CoordinatorCommented:
Driver for Windows 2008 will not suit for Bart PE because Bart is built on XP or Windows 2003 only. So the fact that you used it with Windows 2008 does not say it will work with Windows XP.
0
 
aenticeAuthor Commented:
I agree with you on the driver, however I did use the w2k3 version for bart and the 2008 version for the box itself.  I will try and download the latest w2k3 drivers from ibm to see if it makes any difference.

no good on the newest driver as well...
