Windows 2012 R2 PCA card driver

I received a brand new HP PCA SAS9207-8e 6G HBA H221 Gen 3 card for my server so I can connect a tape drive.

It came without drivers : ( just a suggestion to go to www.hpe.com) so I did and selected windows 2012

It does not seem to do anything, I still have unknown devices in Device Manager (see image). This is driving me nuts! can anyone help?

Try the drivers from here. http://www.avagotech.com/products/storage/host-bus-adapters/sas-9207-8e#downloads
It looks like the drivers from HP are for Win 8.1 only. I extracted the executable from HP and the text file it contained refered t Win 8.1 only the text file from this Recommended link contains information for Windows 2012. here http://www.avagotech.com/products/storage/host-bus-adapters/sas-9207-8e#downloads. see attached.

Hi jmac44

Thanks, this looks very promising. I downloaded the 2012 driver, right - clicked the device with the exclamation mark, browsed to the folder, clicked next and got "Windows cannot find a driver for your device"

Btw the server is a new HP Proliant DL20 Gen 9 (it is a PDC and is running WSUS)
