Windows 7: SCSI adapters not supported

06 Nov 2009   #1

Windows Vista Ultimate
SCSI adapters not supported


Prior to purchasing a Vista Ultimate to Windows 7 Ultimate upgrade for $220, I downloaded and ran the compatibility/upgrade adviser program and found no problems.

While running the Windows 7 Install disk, the installation stopped dead with the message that I must update the driver for my Adaptec 29160N SCSI hard disk storage controller. However it could not find a newer driver than the one I am currently using under Vista, version 6.5.645.100, dated 1/31/2007.

What is going on here???

According to Adaptec, this card will not work with Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2.

Where is a good place to check and see if the scsi adapter is windows 7-compatible?

Or the other end if you prefer. Try MS Compatability listings. You may have to search around on this site. I do not see your mentioned hardware. Absence would lead me to believe it is of doubtful useage.

I was able to get an Adaptec 2906 card to work with Windows 7 X64 but I am not using it for boot drives...
If you get windows 7 up and running I am sure you will be able to get that card recognized and working.
