    Default Newbie Help

    Hi, I need some help setting up a server. The configuration is below. The help is to do with the Raid and Sata Drivers and setup.

    OS to be installed is Windows 2003 Server Enterprise Edition
    The setup i would like is that:
    SATA2_0 - 500GB HDD be the bootable OS drive
    SATA2_2 & SATA2_3 - 500GB HDD are the raid drives where all our development work is kept.

    Motherboard: GA-EP45-UD3R
    CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550
    1 - 500GB Sata II Hard Drive on SATA2_0
    2 - 500GB Sata II Hard Drives on Sata2_2 & SATA2_3 configured as Raid drives through Raid Bios.
    4GB Ram
    DVD Drive

    There is no floopy drive in the system.

    The issue here is that i have copied the boot drivers from the Gigabyte Motherboard CD onto a usb stick but cant install.

    1st not sure if i have copied the right drivers.
    Jraid - system file
    jraid_f - setup file

    Any help would be appreciated before needing to call in a tech to do this. If there is anything i have left out please let me know.

    I don't know about servers but usually with the newer OS you do not need to install raid/sata drivers upon installation. Thes will be installed with the installation and you set it up in the bios. As well as within the raid controller.

    You have the incorrect Raid Drivers on your USB stick. Those drivers are for Gigabyte SATA2, which are the two purple SATA2 connectors on your board. You have your HD's on the Yellow SATA2 connectors, you have to look on the Gigabyte Motherboard Disk for the INTEL RAID Drivers to put on your USB stick.

    Hi Efraim
    Select the website for your revision. Once on the web site Scroll to the bottom and select your drivers. If you have GA-EP45-UD3R rev.1.0 use----->
    GIGABYTE - Support&Download - Motherboard - Driver - GA-EP45-UD3R (rev. 1.0)
    Select your drivers if you have GA-EP45-UD3R rev.1.1 use----->
    Follow the instructions that are in the manual.
