    Windows Server 2008 R2 and Matrix Storage Manager - continuous reboots

    meiru

      I tryed to install Windows Server 2008 R2 on a server. It didn't work, because the raid driver causes a reboot loop. So, I disabled the raid in the bios and installed Windows. After this I reactivated the raid and the computer "rebuilt" the array... so, I've now installed Windows Server 2008 R2 on a raid 1 with the latest Matrix Storage Manager installed (why I tell you that is, because I wanted to clarify, that I could edit registry settings and other things on this machine)... but... still the same problem... when I try to start it with raid activated, it reboots always short before showing the login screen... any ideas how I could solve this?? I tryed the latest matrix storage manager and the version before (Vista x64 version) ...

      [we tryed updating 5 servers to Server 2008 R2... and quess what... we always had problems with the raid drivers... 5 servers, 3 types of raid controller and always driver problems]
