How to install Windows 2003 Server AHCI driver on DC3217BY?


I would like to migrate an existing Windows 2003 server to DC3217BY hardware using Acronis + Universal Restore.

Using the Acronis Universal Restore process I can insert all storage driver from the downloadable "AHCI: Intel® Rapid Storage Technology Driver for Intel® NUC" floppy disk for Windows XP Professional (f6flpy-x86_11.2.0.1006.zip) <<a href="https://downloadcenter.intel.com/confirm.aspx?httpDown=http://downloadmirror.intel.com/23295/eng/f6flpy-x86_11.2.0.1006.zip&lang=eng&Dwnldid=23295&DownloadType=Drivers&OSFullname=Windows+XP++Professional*" title="https://downloadcenter.intel.com/confirm.aspx?httpDown=http://downloadmirror.intel.com/23295/eng/f6flpy-x86_11.2.0.1006.zip&lang=eng&Dwnldid=23295&DownloadType=Drivers&OSFullname=Windows+XP++Professional*"> Download Center>.

The migrated Windows 2003 server on the DC3217BY returns a blue screen when AHCI is enabled.

On the other hand when switching from AHCI to IDE mode, booting into Windows Server 2003 succeeds.

I have been trying to upgrade its BIOS 0032 to version 0049, without an improvement.

How to correctlygst install an AHCI driver in Windows 2003 Server when running on DC3217BY hardware?

Hi ProBackup.nl,

I am sorry you are having problems with this but let me help you.

Based on the information you have provided, I see you are using an Operating System that is not under the supported Operating System for this device. Can you please test installing the Operating System manually or testing a supported Operating System?
