I have a server running Windows Server 2008 R2 X64.  I want to hang a 2TB Sata drive off the server for backups.  I have purchased two different SI controllers, but none of the SI drivers for Windows Server 2008 R2 work.  I get a blue screen when I try to install.  Can anyone recommend a PCI-X SataII card that will work with Windows Server 2008 R2 x64.

I would look at raid crds like the PERC's but for what you are doing they are pricey... are you really needing a ESata or is this just an internal drive?

just get yourself icybox SATA drive caddies which have USB/eSATA all in one and use USB on your server, far easier, or if you want icybox make a docking stations where you just push the hdd into it and it connects via usb
