Can you send me the links for the drivers for Poweredge R530. I'm trying to install windows 2008 R2 and I'm not using RAID.
What are you using? The drives have to be connected to "a" controller, even if it is non-RAID. For example, the H730 is capable of pass-through/JBOD/non-RAID, but you still have to have h730 drivers for it.
Which server? Which RAID controller? How many drives? What size/type? What RAID level are you using? What OS?
I'm installing Windows Server 2008 r2 on a Dell PowerEdge r710 and having the same issue. I just installed a DELL PERC H710 512MB 6GB/S PCI-E 2.0 PowerEdge RAID Controller VM02C W/ battery and set up 2 1 TB drives with RAID level 1 and have already initialized the drives. When I try to install the OS, the drives are not visible. Any info would be helpful. Thanks!
You can try this one:
Or this one:
The first one is for the H700, the second one is for the H710. The H710 is NOT SUPPORTED on the R710.
And regarding the R310 server with the S100 … turn the S100 OFF (non-RAID) in the BIOS. Don't ever use the S-series controllers, they are garbage. Mirror in the OS.
