I'm converting a Dell PowerEdge 830 into a workstation.
I removed the RAID controller and plugged all the hard drives into the SATA ports on the motherboard.
The hard drives have been formatted and there's nothing on them.
When I go to install Windows 7 from an install CD, I use Custom install and then select Drive Options Advanced.
At this point, the installation stops because it can't find drivers for the hard drives.
And, it gives the opportunity to browse for their location.
There are also limitations in dealing with this it appears:
I'm doing the install from a CD and it does appear that I can swap disks in the middle of the process when drivers are being asked for. So that will be the likely method.
A USB thumb drive is NOT seen at this stage.
The computers floppy drive is NOT seen at this stage.
Anyway, what do I need to put on the "driver" CD in order to proceed?
I haven't been able to figure that out, including looking on the Dell website for the PowerEdge 830 drivers.
