so i got a server called IBM netfinity 6000r type 8682 1ry and i am having issues getting the OS (win xp or win server 2003) to see the scsi drives

 

the server has a raid controller and i got 2 names of it

 

the server shows under the scsi utillity that it is a aic - 7899 controller, i found a website that has pics of the controllers and i happen to have a ServeRAID-4Mx Ultra160 SCSI controller

 

as shown at this website here https://lenovopress.com/tips0784

 

the server can boot into windows 2000 advancsed server but when i load win xp or win server 2003 i get no hard drives can be found

 

i been reading that someone can get teh driver and slipstream it into the install files and boot it that way but i cant seem to find the driver that will get win xp/server to see the hard drives, i am trying not to waste CDs here and i got through 3 of them al ready trying to get this thing to have a better OS, any help would help and thak you for the time to help me with this dino server lol

You could use a cd-rw and write over the previous try. Or you can write the drivers to a flopy disk (they sell usb flopy drives). Are you sure you have the correct drivers?
