Adaptec 31605 Raid card as controller - WHS won't detect for install RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to install on a system, using the Adaptec 31605 SAS RAID Controller, but i'm using it just as a SATA controller, so i've simply setup my drives as volumes, not with any RAID setup.

    My problem is, no matter which drivers i've used from their website (http://www.adaptec.com/en-US/support/raid/sas_raid/SAS-31605/) i can't get teh WHS install to see any of the hard drives.

    I added a separate 80gb hard drive & installed in on the on-board SATA port, just to make sure that the controller did work within WHS, and it did.

    So, any hints or tips, or am i missing something obvious?

  • You've tried the ones for Windows Server 2003 (not x64) .. and if that doesn't work, possibly the Windows XP (not x64)?
    The installer needs to read the txtsetup.oem file, do you see that anywhere in those driver files?

  • definitely does have the txtsetup.oem file

    and yes, i tried both the XP & Server 2003 drivers. It scans for hardware changes in the install, but then bounces back, no installable hard drives available.

  • Here's a bit from the log file. Just grabbed the top section, plenty more...but hoping you can see something wrong with it as is:
