    I was told via Email today that Adaptec has no plans to support Windows Vista
    in alpha, beta, RC or final stages until after 2007!!! So what can I do if I
    use the 1200A raid controller do I have to reformat my raid just to put this
    on? Surely there is adaptec support in windows vista as in XP service pack 1?

    Any info on the 2940UW SCSI Cards and ATA 1200A RAID controller is
    appreciated. I need to know if it works with VISTA. Thanks.

  2. Hi,
    the win2000/xp drivers for the 2940UW work but you need a driver disk to
    load them during installation.

    I'm using a 39320a in a raid configuration (Hostraid) in Vista x64 5728 with
    no problems. I have the xp pro x64 drive on a floppy and load them when I
    install a new release of Vista x64.

    FWIW I just installed build 5728 32-bit last night on an old Dell that has a
    39160 card (non raid) and Vista installed just fine with no need to load any
    drivers.

    You are correct. The current Adaptec drivers do not work with Windows Vista. I have a 1200A RAID card also and have found that the Rocket 100 drivers from Highpoint work very well with Vista and this card (both cards use the same Highpoint chipset). You can get them from http://www.highpoint-tech.com
