1.0  Overview
_____________

  NOTE: This README provides information needed to install and 
        configure an IBM ServeRAID-7t SATA controller. 

  
2.0 Installation and setup instructions
________________________________________

    Install the ServeRAID device drivers that are provided with the
    IBM ServeRAID controllers on the "IBM ServeRAID Support" CD.  
    Refer to the IBM ServeRAID Device Driver Installation Instructions 
    (DEVDRV.PDF) in the /BOOKS directory on the "IBM ServeRAID Support" CD.
    

3.0 Troubleshooting tips
________________________

  o  When you update drivers on Windows Server 2003, you may see adapters
     marked as "Not Responding" in the ServeRAID Manager program.  When the
     update is complete, the adapters will be marked "Responding."  This is
     a limitation of the way Windows Server 2003 handle driver updates and
     has no effect on the system.

  • Find the device and model you want to update in the device list.

  • Double-click on it to open the Properties dialog box.
