Question on Restore drivers RRS feed

  • Question

  • I searched the forums and could not find my issue. I am using an Areca Arc 1231ML in my desktop. When I try to do a restore to the desktop I load the drivers ( I tried several areca versions ) and The restore would say it found the drivers. The problem is the drives do not show up on the storage list. Windows 7 on a fresh install sees the drivers and installs fine. Backup on the WHS backs up fine. What could be going on? In what way can the restore CD be  so different? Any tips that I may have missed?

  • The best driver will be a Windows Vista 32 bit driver. After that will be a Windows XP 32 bit driver. You may want to check with tghe RAID HBA manufacturer and find out how to prepare an "F6 floppy". While in this case you don't have to supply drivers on floppy, extracting drivers in that way is likely to be your best bet.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
