I am trying to install Server 2008 R2 on a machine with RAID 1, the motherboard is an Asus M4A785T-M/CSM (yes I know it is not made for Server 2008 some other moron sold it to my client).  The best I can tell the motherboard has an AMD Southbridge SB710, I can't seem to find just the driver to load so Windows can see the drive in the array.  Anyone know where I can find JUST the driver not an excutable?

Download the .exe from Asus and then unpack it either with 7-zip or Universal Extractor to remove the driver file.
Good luck - as you well know there is no Server 2008 support for the board.

Hi,

found this link on the asus website which gives a list of drivers, and as Masqueraid suggested you can try extracting the driver files

Make sure you get the RAID controller since there are all drivers on there.
