We have a Dell PowerEdge 2800 server running Windows Server 2003 R2. We are upgrading software packages and it requires MS SQL Express to be installed. I purchased additional RAM for the system:
DDR2 667MHz (PC2-5300) CL5 Unbuffered UDIMM 240-Pin Desktop Memory Modules
which is what Crutial indicated was correct. Over the weekend I installed it and was not able to get Windows nor Bios to recognize it. I even tried the NVRAM jumper reset which not only did not work but also left the system un-bootable until I figured out the RAID controller had been turned off.
Second part of my question is the system does not seem to have any SATA connections and I'd like to add a SATA SSD to install the SQL Express on. Suggestions on SATA cards that will work well with this server? Thanks
