SCSI controller driver, Windows Server 2008 R2 64-bit

    SCSI controller driver, Windows Server 2008 R2 64-bit

    Configuring our first Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 and need a SCSI controller.
    We sourced the typical card we use - an LSI Logic LSI20160 PCI controller,
    which works great in our other Server 2008 x64 server (driver built into
    OS).

    Sure enough, the R2 server does not seem to have a driver for this card. I
    contacted LSI and they indicated they did not plan on furthering driver
    support for this card, and said if it's not built into the OS there is no
    driver - even though this card is still sold through distribution.

    Is this common - that 2K8 R2 lacks drivers that 2K8 has built-in? Do I have
    any alternate way of getting this card working?

    Can anyone recommend a 68-pin Ultra 160 or greater SCSI card compatible with
    2K8 R2 x64?

    Thanks

    Thanks for the reply. So, is the driver model that different with R2? Is
    this typical?

    I sure wouldn't think so.

    Did you download and burn an ISO? If so there may be some corruption so I'd
    try another download.

    No, this is an install right off of OEM media.

    Is there a way to extract a driver off of a non-R2 media or installation to
    try on R2?

    I ended up cheating and pulling the .inf, .sys, and .pnf files off of a
    working 2008 non-R2 x64 install and loading the driver onto the R2 x64
    install. Despite a warning about an unsigned driver, the driver loaded and
    it seems to be working fine.

    Note that the card wasn't even listed (that I can find) on that
    WindowsServerCatalog site as compatible with 2K8, though Microsoft included
    the driver with the non-R2 OS.

    It was probably the OEM that added it. Good idea.

    I am also trying to get the LSI card to work in 2008 R2. I tried finding the
    driver on the non-R2 disk without luck.

    Could you tell me what OEM media you are using? Or, if I could be so bold as
    to ask for the drivers, I'd really appreciate it.

    Most likely Dell installation media
