I have a client with failed Server 2008 R2 server. This is a migration from SMB Server 2003. I have installed his 2008 R2 installation onto a flash drive for installation. Install proceeds as expected until it requests a driver. I expect it is the Intel mega-raid driver. I have downloaded the floppy image from ASUS and copied the driver files, which are supposedly for 2008 R2, to a folder on a drive that the install can "see".
It does not "see" any compatible drivers. If the show incompatible drivers is checked it sees the drivers. If selected it grinds for a while but claims "no new drivers found".
Any suggestion would be appreciated even without the mega-raid. Not needed at this time.
