=============================================================== From: Jim Wells ------------------------------------------------------ Med The ones I have loaded worked for me. not sure what your problem is or at what point it "hangs" what size drives are you using and how did you setup the raid "before" you started the OS load ?

=============================================================== From: Stephen Kraus ------------------------------------------------------ Wrong revision maybe? What firmware version is the RAID running?

=============================================================== From: Med Dement ------------------------------------------------------ could it be the Controller version of firmware and it not matching = windows 2003...... looking now for a more update verision then 5.6 Med Dement med@hophoto.com got it to load windows.. but it wont bring me to a desktop... it bails = and restarts.... thats where I am right now.. or at what point it "hangs" what size drives are you using and how did = you setup the raid "before" you started the OS load ?

=============================================================== From: Dave Brockman ------------------------------------------------------ -----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 RAID controllers often require a matching, or minimum driver version to interface with a specific firmware version. Not knowing more about your specific issue, here is the link to the latest firmware for that card: http://www-947.ibm.com/support/entry/portal/docdisplay?lndocid=MIGR-62540 You will need to find drivers that match it, v5 firmware appears pretty farking ancient.
