I work for a company that designs and manufactures single board industrial computers. Our most recent board uses the Intel C608 chipset and is configured to supply 4 SAS ports. My problem is that when I configure a RAID array (doesn't matter if its RAID 0, RAID 1 or RAID10) on the SAS ports and then attempt to install the "F6" drivers durning install, Windows 7 (pre SP1) comes back with the message that I need signed 64bit drivers? I have downloaded the last 3 RSTe version and have tried them all and none of them work.
The flip side of this is that If I attempt the install on Windows 7 with Service Pak 1, the drivers install fine without Windows 7 bawking.
Does anyone know why this is happening and how to get around this? We have customers that have pre SP1 copies of Windows 7 and we need a solution. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
At this stage, we do not handle isues with Intel server chipset. I recommend contacting an Intel authorized distributor and work for a field application engineer. See below to get a hold of an Intel authorized distributor:
