3Ware Install Leads to System Recovery
Posted on 2011-05-09
I have a Server 2008 R2 server decided to install my 3ware 9500S-12 controller. I downloaded the drivers and updated them manual in device manager and when I rebooted it went directly into "System Recovery Options" instead of booting up properly.
Performing a boot in safe mode I noticed it hung on the driver: storport.sys, and then went back into system recovery. Upon deleting storport.sys (by attaching my SATA disk to a USB adapter and then to my laptop) and trying to boot into safe mode again, it didn't hang on storport.sys (as it didn't exist anymore) but still went into system recovery.
Can I please have some help here, the first priority for me is getting my system back up and running. Having a working 3ware controller is a secondary priority.
