DL165 SATA Driver for 2K8R2 Install

Hi there,

I recently purchased a DL165 G6 to run a small app service. When I have the server setup to use SATA mode, I do not see my drives in the Windows server installer screen. Putting them into PATA mode allows them to show.

I tried using the drivers on the Support CD included with the server, however this does not detect the drives in the install mode.

I'd like to use the drives in SATA mode to boot the system but have't had luck. Is there 2K8R2 drivers for this box?

You can download and extract raid controller driver in to a USB Flash memory and you can select that driver during OS installation when it is asked (hard drive)
