Install Windows Server on Raid SRCU31

By swisstonihasher ·
Hi,

Need some help here please...I've got a 3 year old Intel PIII dual CPU server with STL2 motherboard that was previously running Windows 2000 Server with the SRCU31, the RAID "paritions" are set to 8Mb mirror for the os (two drives) and the remaining space RAID 5, there's no IDE hard drive in the server, its all from the RAID!

I tried to install 2003 Server as clean install with 2000 Server running, but had the error message "no drives detected".

Tried this again booting from 2000 Server CD using the lastest drivers for the SRCU31 and had the same message. I cannot get the os install to see the raid drives for building a new os - I've even re-formated the C partition...

The Raid Controller Firmware is V4.20.014 - I cannot find the legacy drivers for this RAID controller on Intel's website to download.

Cheers but I think that link is an old one...

I've downloaded the drivers from Intel's website for currently available items but they dont work - I can't see anything under the legacy SRCU31 Raid control for downloads and Intel doesn't support the item any longer...

Also the AIC-7899 chip has been used by many vendors
bottom line it is a very common chip and well supported - did you try Adaptecs site as it is and adaptec product?

2003 Server

2003 Server is missing quite a few of the legacy Hardware Drivers, That board is rather obscure. It has been discontinued by Intel try this link download the firmware upgrade and upgrade the firmware then try the new 2003 drivers.

Gone through the BIOS RAID configuration? Also hope that was a typo on an 8M system partition.
