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,

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
