Installing drivers in a running server RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've got WHS running on a single ATA drive and now want to install a Promise SATA controller for my additional drives. What is the procedure for adding the controller and driver without having to reinstall the entire server?

  • Well, you should be able to shut down your server, install the new controller and drive(s), and reboot. Then you'll need to install drivers after it reboots: log in (remote desktop or local console) and install the drivers (preferably for Windows Server 2003).
