It's integrated in the Intel esb6300 chipset. I've tried Intel's x64 sata hostraid controller driver and it won't work. I need the x64 adaptec embedded sata hostraid controller driver during windows x64 installation (F6).

I have no idea what the number is for the controller. It's for my Iwill DH800 mb.

There's no link on Iwill's site to download these drivers to put on a floppy or embed them onto your XP installation disc?

satunotaku,

No. I did email IwillUSA inregards to x64 sata hostraid drivers which they don't have listed anywhere. I've also looked at Adaptec's website as well without any success. I was in hopes that there would be a x64 driver for this controller by now. :rolleyes:

retsam,

My motherboard is an Iwill DH800 dual xeon rev A2.

Cheers

Well.. I finally found an adaptec embedded sata hostraid controller driver over at Dell's driver/support page. I won't post a link until a moderator approves. The driver loaded just fine when asked for during the Window's installation .. F6 (additional drivers needed).

However, when it asked which partition I should use, my mouth dropped opened. Remember, I'm using 2 x 74 gb raptors (sata raid config). My old os is still on there with 4 patitions c,d,e,and f. Windows is on C drive.

This is what I saw. It listed 1 partition.

70905 MB Disk 0 at ID 0 on bus 0 on aarich (MBR)

C: partition1 [unknown] 35338 MB < 35448 MB Free >
Unpartitioned 106360 MB

It looks like it wants to recognize it as one large partition. Perhaps JBOD??? 2 x 74 GB raptors would look like this in the setup: 69.24 GB X 2 = 138.48 GB the rest is fat (ntfs). Listed above is about ~141 GBs.

Any thoughts??

Cheers
