Intel 82801FR SATA Raid Controller Driver

Looking to load Server 2003 on an HP DL320 G3 and Raid Controller is not found in Smart start. Does anyone have a link to the Raid Controller Driver. Or another suggestion for setup

Re: Intel 82801FR SATA Raid Controller Driver

Is your Server SATA Model (HP embedded 2 Port SATA Controller). Keep in mind that the HP Smart Start CD only works with smart array controller it doesn't work with SATA controllers.

Suggestions for Setup:
- Slipstreaming CD (burning the driver with the OS)if you don't have a floppy drive.
- JBOD to RAID1
What does that mean:

1. Install OS with Embedded SATA RAID Disabled(No Drivers or F6 required) on one Harddrive.
2. Once OS is installed, Extract the Embedded SATA RAID Drivers to a folder.
3. Goto Control Panel-> Add New Hardware->Device is connected->New Hardware->Raid Controller->Have Disk->Browse to the folder where the Embedded SATA RAID Drivers were extracted. Select the .inf file->Install Adaptec Raid Driver.
4. Restart the Server goto BIOS enable the Embedded SATA RAID.
5. Press F8 and goto Sata Raid BIOS->Configure the Drives->Create Array->Raid 0/1 A warning message will appear "Warning: Configuring the drives will erase all Array information from the selected drives, if that drive is part of an array. Arrays using any of these drives as members will be affected! Do you want to continue?(Yes/No):". Press "Y" to continue.
6. If Raid 1 is selected it will ask you what is the Source Disk, select the Right Disk in which OS was installed previously. Warning message might appear again. Select "Y".
7. Rebuild will take sometime, once rebuild is complete restart the server.

Once rebooted Raid would be detected and windows would boot up, in windows it would detect new hardware and Adaptec Raid drivers will be installed. Now Server is built migrated to Raid Successfully.

I attached some screenshots in order to create a slipstreaming CD using Nlite.
