Windows 2003 32bit (possible driver issue?)
Posted on 2014-03-16
A new client has an HP Proliant ML310 G3 server. It has an embedded SATA RAID Controller which connects to a 4 bay hot swappable enclosure. There is one hard drives for OS and Data (partitioned accordingly).
The server is experiencing random freezes, which appear to be related to disk I/O.
I tried to run CrystalDiskInfo, but it failed to find/identify either disk.
I tried to run Speccy, but it caused the server to reboot (Speccy loads, the screen goes black, and the BIOS appears)
I tried to run Auslogics Defrag, but that also caused the server to reboot (same as Speccy)
I figured a RAID drive update would resolve the problem, but HP doesn't offer drivers for this server anymore. So I installed Driver Genius, and it reported the following information:
Adaptec AHCI Serial ATA HostRaid Controller
Intel 82801GR STAT RAID Controller
It suggested the Intel iata_cd_10.8.0.1003.exe driver. Unfortunately, Driver Genius was unable to locate / download the driver to install.
So here are my questions:
1) Does anyone know where I can download this driver?
2) Does this sound like a driver problem, or am I approaching this problem incorrectly?
