I have bought a second hand Dell Poweredge 2950 Gen 2 with 8 gb, a Perc 6/1 and 6 Sas drives (146 Gb). I want to install Windows SBS 2011 64 and create a Raid 10. The server came however without additional software.
I understand that before I can run the 2011 Setup I first must prepare my system with Dell Software. I think this page offers me the files ( http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/19/ServiceTag/45H973J
When I select as operating system 2008 64 the choice is still too big. What software do I need to prepare my Poweredge for Windows 2011.
You can also install directly from the OS DVD, and the PERC drivers will be "native" to Windows, BUT you MUST configure RAID in the CTRL-R utility before attempting to install or no drives will be seen.
