Microserver N40L and 2008 R2

For two weekends I've fought this little server and I cannot seem to get 2008 R2 server installed.

I have (2) Seagate 160gb hdd set to RAID 1.  Server installation stops and asks for the RAID drivers that I hunted down on the AMD site and loaded onto a thumb drive.  None of the drivers will load so I can continue installation.  I verified that I have the correct drivers. 

 

Anyone have ANY thoughts or advice on what to try?  I'm not a novice at server installations, I've done it hundreds of times at work on enterprise systems.

 

Thanx

 

Michael

Hi,

 

Hope you have tried this driver at AMD.

If still the problem, have you tried to embed the drivers into OS media using nLite.

One does not use nlite for server 2008 r2 (that was for XP)

 

I installed Server Core to USB SSD drive with 4 drives in software RAID5, which works fine

 

Maybe it would be a better option for you
