Dell Poweredge server not booting with Dell Adaptec Raid Controller Card

Hello,

I have a Dell Power edge server. I just installed Windows 2008 RS2 on it. I shut down the machine and insert a brand new  Dell Adaptec ASC-39320A GC401 FP874 Ultra320 SCSI/LVD Dual PCI-X 320MBps RAID Controller Card.  It gets to the windows loading screen and the screen goes black, and does nothing..

I take the card out and windows boots perfect.

Any idea on what is going on? I would imagine a driver issue, but I am unsure of what to do.

Thanks - Matt

Sounds like it might be a IRQ conflict.

Hit F8, Enable the Bootlog, Shutdown and put the card back in, and see what it says, and/or post it here.

its not allowing me. It gets to the scrolling Windows part at bootup and  doesn't load into the OS.

Found out that the ASC-39320A is not compatible . ( card is around $20.00 )
The 39320A-R is compatible with Window server 2008 R2. ($120.00)
