nf4 sli-dr sil3114 RAID0 problems!!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm 2 days without any freakin progress.. I am trying to install Windows Server 2008 x64 and I can't find the stupid drivers for the SiI 3114 RAID controller that comes on the boards..

Worst part is, why the hell is the Windows installation for Vista/Server or anything really so *SLOW*. I've had this computer for awhile now.. and it's just a ***** to mess with when installing an OS, especially if I want RAID0 ...

Anyone got any tips?

I've already tried:

http://www.siliconimage.com/support/...x?pid=28&cid=3&

I just want to get this thing up and working.. I can't even install an OS on it .... without the drivers. How do I set them up to identify as IDE hard drives then I can soft RAID them later?

grr !

Have you looked into the nForce RAID drivers?
Also, check the "RAID" notes on a similar DFI MB which may be relevant... ncsa knows his stuff...

I've seen that before, and ncsa does know his stuff. Problem I'm having is that the XP drivers for RAID don't work for Vista .. and if they work for Vista, they should work for Server 08'

So.. I had Vista in RAID0 before, but I don't remember what drivers I used, this was so long ago :-/

gaaah .. I need to figure this out
