Windows 7: Adaptec 29160 driver NOT installed - HOW?

20 Jan 2010   #51


Adaptec has now posted Win7 drivers (32 and 64) for the 29160# cards. Didn't check for 39160.

Adaptec - Adaptec SCSI Card 29160N

29160n, 29320, 39320a

You might be able to help me.
I own 2 x 29160N cards I never had a problem using either XP or 2000 with them: The installation process will recognize the card without any problems
Not so with Vista or Windows 7 - even when using the drivers published by Adaptec (as of January 2010)
I decided to buy a 39320A which Adaptec indicates supports Windows 7 - NOT SO
In fact the 39320A is not even recognized by XP !
I read with interest that you have been able to install Vista with a 29320 card without problems and I believe you said also Windows 7
Could you give me a road map on how to do it and the drivers (if any) needed?
Next step would be to find a few 29320 cards to purchase at eBay
Thanks in advance
