How can I add RAID Drivers to the SBS 2003 R2 Install Disk?
Posted on 2011-03-17
We have a new server that we need to install SBS 2003 R2 on. As is often the case these days the RAID hardware is not recognised by SBS and the motherboard doesn't have a floppy drive controller. Our USB floppy drive is also not recognised by the SBS installation.
I've been searching for a way to customise the SBS install disk to add the required drivers but all references I've found so far suggest using nLite to make the changes. I've tried every version of nLite I can get my hands on (from the latest back to v1.0 final) and none of them recognise the SBS 2003 R2 disk as being a valid Windows install disk due to lack of i386 folder.
Is there a manual process for adding drivers to the SBS disk? Other software which can achieve this? Some method for installing SBS on a machine with an unrecognised RAID controller?
