    The driver provided above is the one you need. The LSI 20160 SCSI adaptor reports itself as a "53C1010-66 Device" in Windows 7 Device Manager.

    The original disk with Xp on it fired up without any problems, so we are currently transferring all the data back from the tape to a new HDD.

    Just shows you can never rely on anything. This is an 18 month old HP machine which has never given a moment's problem before. Running WD diagnostic from another workstation it seems that the drive is recognised all the time, but is reading and writing only intermittently. Most odd.

    Just as a post script on the above, I have now suffered a second idential HDD failure within two week!

    (The problem seems to be that the Registry / MBR / FAT or whatever is being corrupted when the machine tries to shut down.)

    I don't think this is connected with the SCSI controller or driver, but I thought I should mention it just in case anyone else has the same problem.

    I will post this as a seprate question on the forum.

    LSI Logic PCI Ultra 160 driver that works for win7

    after having a few issues with a PCi-E to PCI card adapter, I was able to find a driver that allows the LSI Ultra Scsi 160 from my XW 5000 workstation to be used in Win7 without it complaining that the driver was for the wrong platform. This one is pretty old..but it sure has the right stuff. Found it via cnet, but it's only for this specific chipset..the LSI Card badged drivers all had issues resulting in no operation. Going for the chipset driver yielded the expectd resulted..surprising when you not the build date on the driver.. I had installed win7 on the xw a few years ago, but I couldn't afford all the software updates I needed for a real move to win7..I had a vague memory of using the scsi controller for booting.

    anyhow..if you're still wanting to use scsi I salute you wih the following screen shots from my win7 setup. EVGA Z68 ftw mb core i5 lots of sata drives and some vintage 1992 scsi hard disks. I used a startech pci-e to PCI card adapter to install the LSI in an open PCI-e slot..so to speak, I'm really reaching back in time with this part of my setup.

    Oh yeah..you can find this driver package here....:

    Yeah I know, old thread, but it saved me. Thanks PiqueABoo very much for your upload. These drivers (as it turned out) also work for the older LSI (Symbios 22801) dual controller, in Windows 7 Ultimate. These controllers use the "53C875/876" controller chips. I installed using the drivers update feature in device manager, then directed the manager to a USB drive with this uncompacted ucode. Win 7 device manager is content, I'm content, and the world is a better place, well two out of three isn't bad. I can access my archived data drives, and my tape library drives.
