Raid controllers w/driver support for Win2k?

3 posts in this topic

I'm upgrading from a mainboard with a PCI-X (way old) ARECA controller and I'm trying to sort out some options.

None of the PCIe 3.0 controllers are going to offer support for Win2k, so that leaves me with PCIe 2.0.

Of the SATA III controllers offering Raid 50 and 60 that I've seen, these are the only two that offer support for at least eight drives via internal connectors with a half gig of cache:

MegaRAID SAS 9260-16i


MegaRAID SAS9280-16i4e


Intel has one supporting eight drives but only 256mb cache.

If you know of additional controllers I'm missing, please let me know.

The ones I mentioned list support for "OS Support -- Extensive support includes Microsoft® Windows® Vista/Server 2003/2000/XP,

Linux® and more. Visit the LSI download Center for the most complete list of

supported operating systems: lsi.com/support."
