1. Set the controller to Legacy or IDE mode in setup.
2. Install Windows, update all drivers.
3. Set the controller back to ICH mode.
thank you for your post.
I deactivate RAID functionality in BIOS and was able to install Server 2008.
However after updating all drivers and building RAID1 the Server returns BSOD.
Since this Server has to run in production environment i choose to buy a new Controller which fully supports Server 2008.
it's me again.
Since Server 2008 won't install on the built-in Controller i decide to buy suitable Controller.
The Servers manual says that the PCIe x4 Slot accept x8-card.
Does anyone know if a SmartArray P400 (405132-B21) /w 256Mb BBWC (381573-001) will work in that Server in combination with the original cable and 4-slot-hdd-cage?
Thanky you in advance.
