    S5520SC MB and windows XP Pro

    Des274

      Hi I have a SC5520SC MB with an AXX4SASMOD card and an AXX6DRV3GR cage with a single SAS HDD in it. When I try to install Win XP Pro I can load the LSI PCI Fusion-MPT driver from a USB FDD but  when XP tries to install after formatting the HDD it gets to a point and asks for the LSI driver in Drive A and press enter but nothing happens. Any help would be appreciated.

          Hello,

           

          I think for this module:

           

          If you have Intel® RAID SAS module controller AXX4SASMOD in IR RAID mode, presented in Intel(R) S5500/5520 chipset based motherboards, you will need to use this F6 driver 

           

          Otherwise if you are using it as set to " Intel® ESRT-2" mode, then you will need to use this F6 driver.

           

          Now if your system does not come with an internal floppy disk drive, otherwise use a software to slipstream the driver and thus creating a new OS already integrated with the F6 drivers. Make a new Bootable ISO image and burn it on a CD.
          Software like Nlite allows you to do this.

           

          Check this website for Nlite:
          http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/sb/CS-029550.htm

           

          Some usb floppy donot work.

           

          Have you checked if the SAS is on the tested list for Intel?

           

          Let us know how it goes.

           

          Kind Regards,

          Aryan.
