Promise FastTrak TX4000/S150TX driver with Server 2003

We are setting up a workstation as a branch file server; low utilization. Installed on the workstation is a old Promise FastTrak TX4000/S150TX RAID card. The workstation BIOS sees the card and using the cards own BIOS was able to setup a RAID 1.

The issue is this: Starting to load the MS Server2003 software and doing the F6, S, install I get to the point after the formatting where the installer is calling for the disk in drive A:. Well, the OEM drivers are on the disk but the Server 2003 installer does not see the drivers. It is calling for a disk with the name "Promise FastTrak TX4000/S150TX Series Driver Diskette". Needless to say, that name is way to long for a floppy. Looking at the OEM setup file it defines the  "Promise FastTrak TX4000/S150TX Series Driver Diskette" as d5. There are folders on the floppy that are for various OS's with Server 2003 being one.

Any thoughts on how I can get the Server2003 installer to see the folder on the floppy?

I don't think the floppy label matters, but I have just often seen similar issues with floppies that were just bad. Try other floppies, or get a new box.

As long as you aren't talking about Windows 2003 SBS, you can try slipstreaming the drivers into a 2003 install CD. You should be able to use the nliteos tool to do that:

nLite OS did the trick. I made a ISO with the Server2003 and the new driver and got the Workstation/Server running.
