I installed an AHA-2940UW card and have 2 - 146GB drives, but when I use diskpart, I don't see the drives in the 'list disk'. I tried the Adaptec driver for server 2008, but and the disks mount but are not seen in diskpart. Any ideas on next steps?

Do you see the drives from the Disk management tool (diskmgmt.msc) ?
You may although use this tool to "Re-Scan" the server and check if that allows for detection of the drives

To my understanding, if you see the drives in this Disk mgmt tool, you should although see them in DiskPart.exe

Does the SCSI controller see the disks when you boot up? There should also be a shortcut key combination to enter the controller's setup utility when booting, like ctrl+a or ctrl+s. When you get into that utility check if the disks are available and what status is shown. Also make sure they have valid ID's set and the SCSI bus is properly terminated.

Both drives show up on boot and are properly configured in the SCSI card utility. After boot, you can see them in the diskmgmt snap-in in the MMC. Still no sign of them in diskpart.

@BigSchmuh - absolutely...the drives appear in diskmgmgt and on rescan that remains unchanged; also, the lasck of their appearance in diskpart remains unchanged unfortunately. Thanks, though.
