Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

A number of people have been reporting trouble with Win2008 R2 64 bit and this controller. Trouble is the version distributed by Dell wasn’t digitally signed.

You can try either of the following:
- Get the unofficial Dell driver for Perc 4e here:<a href=”http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/format.aspx?c=us&cs=2684&l=en&s=pub&deviceid=2624&libid=35&releaseid=R99970&vercnt=2&formatcnt=0&SystemID=PWE_6850&servicetag=2G6V2D1&os=WNET&osl=en&catid=-1&dateid=-1&typeid=-1&formatid=-1&impid=-1&checkFormat=true”>
Drivers & Downloads – File Formats: LSI Logic CERC ATA 100</a>
or
- Get the LSI signed drivers directly here (for W2003_64 bit work on 2008):
