PE 2900 - Missing Storage Drivers - Windows Server 2012

Jump to solution

According to this document:

http://en.community.dell.com/techcenter/b/techcenter/archive/2012/06/07/windows-server-2012-release-...

PE 2900 storage drivers are included within Windows Server 2012, however this is not the case for me.  There is also a comment on this page:

http://en.community.dell.com/techcenter/os-applications/w/wiki/3492.windows-server-2012-inbox-driver...

from 'box293' who reports a similiar issue for his PE 1955, which I think use the same drivers.

I believe I'm using a PERC 5/i

Where can I get the necessary drivers?

Have you already configured RAID in the CTRL-R utility?  The PERC's do not support non-RAID, so RAID must be configured before the OS can see/use any drives connected to the PERC.

My mistake.  The drivers were included.  The missing storage driver was for another controller.
