Smart Array 431 Controller

Not sure if this is the right forum for this question...but does anyone know where I can get SCSI Drivers and txtsetup.oem for Smart Array 431 Controller. This is so we can do the textsetup preinstall of scsi drivers before the install of Windows 2000 Server. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanx

Here is a link to the SA431 Controller Win2K driver:
This does not contain the preinstall drivers, sorry.
Here is a link to the non-miniport drivers:

Not sure if this helps you?

Re: Smart Array 431 Controller


I have a similar problem.
Want to add a driver for the smart array 431 to BartPE.
This also requires a txtsetup.oem file.

I think that this should work:
(not tested don't have the hardware at the moment)

Download the "HP ProLiant Smart Array-2 Controllers Driver for Windows Server 2003" driver

Edit the txtsetup.oem file into this:

# The original version of this txtsetup.oem file that you get from HP/Compaq does
# not include IDs for the Compaq Smart Array 4200, 4250ES and 431 Controller
# Updated by Bart "PE" Lagerweij @ November 18, 2004

d1 = "Compaq Integrated Smart Array Controller Diskette",\TXTSETUP.OEM,\

SCSI = cpqarry2

cpqarry2 = "Compaq Integrated Smart Array Controller"

driver = d1,cpqarry2.sys,cpqarry2
inf = d1,cpqarry2.inf
catalog = d1,

value = "",tag,REG_DWORD,102
value = Parameters\PnpInterface,5,REG_DWORD,1
value = Parameters\Device,NumberOfRequests,REG_DWORD,80

id = "PCI\VEN_1000&DEV_0010&SUBSYS_40400E11","cpqarry2"
id = "PCI\VEN_1000&DEV_0010&SUBSYS_40480E11","cpqarry2"
id = "PCI\VEN_1011&DEV_0046&SUBSYS_40500E11","cpqarry2"
id = "PCI\VEN_1011&DEV_0046&SUBSYS_40510E11","cpqarry2"
id = "PCI\VEN_1011&DEV_0046&SUBSYS_40580E11","cpqarry2"

Bart, this was a looooong time ago - but you're a legend - I've spent hours stuffing with this thing to try and get it up and running under XP for a Windoze game server - Thank you for your infinite wisdom!
