Cannot find software for an old server


We have an old hp server which I am trying to install windows 2008 32bit on (just got some old tape drives and tapes that we need to restore some data from).

The problem is that windows is not recognising any drivers I found for that raid controller (.Smart Array 642 )

I have done some googling and people suggesting updating firmware but I cannot find any firmware or drivers, actualy HP website not finding the serial number at all ( 8324KJ4Z1031 )

Any suggestions?
