Windows 7: Installing Adaptec 29160N SCSI

07 Feb 2011   #1

Windows 7 (32 bit)
Installing Adaptec 29160N SCSI

I am having difficulty installing this card which I wish to use with my Epson GT 7000 (same as Perfection 636S) scanner.
Have downloaded the driver u160_w7_ws08r2_x86_drv_b7_5_645_100.exe from Adaptec and unzipped.
Windows fails to detect the card automatically. If I then elect to install manually,the only Model showing for Adaptec is AIC-7870 PCI SCSI Controller (emulated) and not the 29160N. I attach a .docx file of the screen shots to the point where I'm stuck.

Any suggestions would be welcome
