Hi Horace,

You need to press F6 while installing the OS and then access the driver from the diskette where you have stored that drive file.

You need to use a USB FDD...

Hope this answers!!!!!

Re: 8 port SATA controller on DL320 G3

Hi Horace,

Download the file and run it there will be 2 optins Install and Extract. Format a floppy and extract the files into a floppy.

Installing the Driver in a New Windows System
In this scenario, you are installing the driver in a new system that has no operating system. To install the driver:

Create a driver disk by copying the contents of cp006919.exe to a floppy diskette.

If creating an array, press Ctrl+A when prompted to enter the BIOS Setup utility.

Press F6 when prompted to install a third-party driver.

Note: When F6 is active, a prompt appears at the bottom of the screen. Press F6 immediatelyâ you only have 5 seconds. If you miss your chance, restart this Windows installation to complete it correctly. Otherwise, Windows will not recognize your controller.

Insert the driver disk you created in Step 1 and wait until prompted to install a driver.

Press S to specify that the driver is on the floppy disk, then press Enter.

When the Serial ATA HostRAID driver is found, press Enter. Follow the remaining on-screen instructions to complete your installation.

Regards,
Raj.
