Cannot create a stable subkey under a volatile parent key

Hi all,
I've just installed an Adaptec 6805e card into an existing server.  The backup and recovery using Acronis worked ok and Windows is up and running again.  However, I can't install the Windows RAID drivers from the CD or website as Windows upon trying to install the driver Windows reports:
"Cannot create a stable subkey under a volatile parent key"

Can anyone help me to install these drivers - I suspect I need to delete a registry key but I'm not sure which one.

Thanks,
Chris

I would start here..  Download this software as it will a current up-to-date create driver backup and you should be able to delve into the driver, registry, etc.

http://sourceforge.net/projects/drvback/

This is works great.

HTH,

Kent

Hi Kent,
That's an interesting tool but didn't actually give me any driver details at all.  It allowed me to back up the current drivers but that's all.  

Any other ideas?

Thanks,
Chris

There were clearly other problems here.  As I was trying to sort this out I found that often on rebooting the RAID card wasn't detected or the card was detected but the OS wasn't detected.  Reading about it I suspected that it may be due to the PCI-e slot on this Asus P5Q-EM motherboard.  Some people say PCI-e on non-server mobos are only good for graphics.  Whatever I did I could not get the computer to boot reliably so in the end I opted for Windows software raid.  Oh, how I wish the previous IT guy had gone for a proper server rather than a home brew!!!
