    - 2003R2 Install

    Hi,

    I'm trying to install Windows 2003R2 onto a server which has an LSI 20160 SCSI controller fitted. Unfortunately I cannot find the disks that go with the box and so even though I have downloaded the driver from the LSi website I cannot get Windows to recognise it when installing from floppy.

    I press F6 to install additional drivers - but it doesn't work. I tried one and it installed but wouldn't recognise the drives.

    I downloaded from here: LSI20160 : SCSI HBAs : Host Bus Adapters : Products : Storage : LSI

    Any advice of files welcome,

    Gareth

    Ah now you want the help of the 'techies'

    You have only SCSI disks attached, no SATA? Have you tried the Windows NT 4 & Windows 2000 driver?

    And why is that a problem? It is why I am here. I've never criticised the technicians - so if you are referring to my other post then keep it in that post.

    If the question was too hard for you then move along ;-)

    That's some attitude you have there, you started this playful 'banter' you know. Please don't tell me what/where to post. I was not having a go at you and i did give you advice.

    [note: I have deleted any further comments I made as I did not want this thread to turn into an argument between myself & gareth]

    All done now. Didn't need technician support. Sorry to have ruffled your feathers.

    If you read my comments in the other posts I openly admitted to being human and getting annoyed.

    I didn't start any "playful banter". I responded to another thread with my point of view. It was in the FFS forum so let's keep it there.

    So - my apologies if you thought I had attitude - such is the nature if typing instead of speaking face to face. :-)

    Hi,

    I'm glad you responded - if people do not point out the errors then sometimes we become blind as we make them (did that make sense).

    I fully agree with your behaviour comment.

    I didn't think I was aggressive when I fired off my reply. Which interestingly enough was the wrong thing to do. It raises something else - read the post!!! I didn't read your post properly and as such missed the second part. Again I apologise for that.

    I'm going to shut up now - but it's a good discussion for others to follow (including us) and realise that typed text can sometimes be interpreted wrongly - especially if we do not read the full text.

    Thanks for looking into the problem. As it happens I was downloading totally the wrong drivers. The SCSI card was being used for the AIT4 tape drive. The 5 drives are actually SAN drives connected to the Intel motherboard. Once I had the correct drivers for that R2 installed without any issues. Doh me.

    Gareth
