32 bit driver for S130 RAID controller on R230 server

Hello,

I'm trying to install 32 bit Windows 2008 R2 on a Dell R230 server. I need the driver for the S130 RAID controller.

I found the 64 bit version on the website, but can't find the 32 bit version. Ran into this same issue a few years ago and was given a URL where I could download the 32 bit driver.

Any help you can provide will be greatly appreciated.

2008 R2 is 64-bit only. There is NO 32-bit version.

Are you talking about Server 2008 SP2? That is not the same thing. 2008 shares a kernel with Vista, 2008 R2 shares a kernel with Windows 7. Server 2008 is not supported on the R230.

If you absolutely MUST run Server 2008 x86, then consider doing it in a virtual machine on Hyper-V, ESXi, or on a full modern Windows operating system. OR turn off the S130 and use Windows-managed RAID instead of the S130 (which is a horrible controller, by the way). Ideally, you would use an H730 controller, but an H330 or Windows-managed RAID would be far better options.
