Re: Poweredge R420 Drivers for Windows2003

Well, you have a dilemma then ... use a configuration unsupported by your software vendor or use a configuration unsupported by your hardware vendor... you may experience problems either way.

Let us know how it goes.

Hi - I have a Power Edge R420 and need drivers for the Perc Raid H310Mini for Windows 2003 Standard 32 Bit . I know Server 2003 Standard is not supported for this server but I need to have this installed.

Any drivers or any help you can provide I appreciate it.

Why? Why can't you virtualize?

You can try XP drivers:

Or you can try the 2008x86 drivers (it has the textsetup.oem file):

Or you can downgrade the controller to something unsupported but that supports non-modern OS's.

Hey theflash1932 -

Thank You very much for you help on this - I've been trying to get this working for a few days now and thanks to your help I'm up and running WIndows 2003 Server

I went with option 2 and I was able to see the drives and install Server 2003 perfect !!!

Just need to find the network drivers and a few drivers it didn't find. Thanks again
