Intel® R1304WT2GSR with Adaptec RAID 8405E controller. Can't install Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2. Do not find RAID drivers.
Tried to use Intel® RSTe AHCI & SCU Software RAID Driver для Windows* (RSTe_and_AHCI_Win_Drivers_GUI_CLI_CIM_184.108.40.2065.zip) - does not help.
What drivers should I use?
Thanks for joining the community.
Just to clarify this RAID controller that you are using is a 3rd party manufactured by Microsemi? If this is the case you should download the drivers from the OEM website. Intel only release drivers for their own Intel manufactured/branded RAID controllers cards. The RSTe and ESRT2 drivers found are for the software RAID solutions embedded in the board that can be enabled in BIOS.
I found the following URL for the Microsemi website where you can download their released drivers for the available OS: https://storage.microsemi.com/en-us/support/raid/sas_raid/asr-8405e/ https://storage.microsemi.com/en-us/support/raid/sas_raid/asr-8405e/ . Take into consideration that this is a 3rd party website and Intel is not responsible for their content.
Besides the aforementioned also consider this 3rd party RAID controller is not listed within the compatible devices for this server as per https://ark.intel.com/products/88280/Intel-Server-System-R1304WT2GSR https://ark.intel.com/products/88280/Intel-Server-System-R1304WT2GSR so you can use it at your own risk.
Hopes this helps.
