Pinned topic Xseries 206m controller sata driver - F6 during the installation of win2003

‏2013-02-26T20:30:15Z |
Hi, I'm new..
I need to format a Xseries 206m. During the installation of windows 2003 server the system don't find the hard disk. Where can I find the driver for the controller? I think I need a floppy disk with the driver, and press F6 during the installation..

I have two raid1 sata hard disk.

Thank you
Simone

    Dear Simone,

    what is the RAID controller in your x206m?
    Lets check DSA log.

    All RAID software, and drivers too, available on the next page:

    IBM ServeRAID software matrix
    https://www-947.ibm.com/support/entry/myportal/docdisplay?lndocid=SERV-RAID

    Or you can use ServerGuide CD for easy Windows installation:

        Hi Simone,

        checked it just now, no problem with file. Why you are told that it corrupted?
        And why you need it? ServeRAID-7e is not supported for x206m:

          Sorry but ...

          Where can I find the correct model of the raid?
          The serial of the server is: 99L3711 MT-M 8485-E7G

            Hi Simone,

            may be ServeRAID-8e inside. You can use DSA tool for check it, or just see on the boot screen and search the ServeRAID word.

              It's a ServeRAID-8e, but where can I find the software for the floppy disk that I need during the installation of windows 2003 (F6 at the start of the installation)?

              thank you
              Simone

                  Hi Alexander, are you sure that it's the correct driver that I use in the floppy disk 1.44"? I think it's driver for windows .. not for the installation from a cd.

                  My problem is that the new installation of windows 2003, from a original cd, doesn't find the hard disk

                  thank you
