my win7 recognizes the card and tries to install drivers but then it says the drivers fail to install.
under computer management i see the card with a yellow exclamation point (famous code 10)
Carlitos i had "the not recognized problem" in my perc5 controller and i downgraded back to the original dell firmware for my perc5 and the device got recognized without any problem in win 2008 r2.
ps: I had previously updated the firmware to the latest LSI version. Worked perfectly in openfiler and vmware esxi but not in windows 2008
Hi A_Man_Eating_Duck ,
Todays Bench with a 256 MB stick, the original that perc had, and with disck cache enabled seems to be no more slowdowns, i got a constant transfer from another drive connected to the motherboard of 114Mb/s...
For now i think the problem could be in the 512 MB stick from samsung ...
Gonna keep testing.
The cable is from a local retailer and are like those red ones from ebay...
The Samsung drives are brand new ... i tested them and all seemed to be ok ...
Thank you for your help
Not sure if that is a typo, but you need 3 or more disks for a RAID5.
have you done the tape mod on your PERC?
|I need to install the perc 5i w/ 2 x samsung f4 in raid 5 on my server computer. (mobo is GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3L). For some reason with this motherboard I can not enter t Ctrl R so i can configure there raid 5 w/ the perc 5i. The GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3L does recognize the perc 5i with both win 7 x64 and server 2008 r2.|
