I am attempting to do a fresh install of 2008 R2 on a server that currently has a working copy of XP. The storage controller is a 9690SA SAS/SATA-II RAID PCIe. Windows asks for a driver disk (assuming it is looking for the 3ware driver). The driver I am using comes from this link: http://bit.ly/117mBHR
Install will ask for the driver. Inserting a USB or CD with the driver displays the proper choice on the screen (hide incompatible drivers is checked ). However, an error comes back that it cannot find the correct driver.
You can view the hardware on this server here:
