Precision T5600 SAS/SATA Controller Driver

I recently received the workstation Precision T5600. The original configuration was the installation in RAID 1 with 2 SATA drives. I killed the RAID and loaded a single drive SAS instead of RAIDs. When I loaded a Windows 7 installation disc, windows could not see all of the hard drives. So my question is there a place where I can download the driver for the SATA/SAS controller and throw on a USB to load during the installation process of Windows 7?

Thank you.


Dell Dear user community.

I having the same problem as jHartweck,

I recently bought the Dell Precision T5600, but I'm not able to install Windows 7, because the SATA/SAS controller driver is not available.

Someone of you managed to solve this problem?

I'm looking forward to your reply.

  • Satellite L350-H20 HDD / SATA-Controller Driver


    yesterday, I tried to reinstall Windows 7 x 64 (and/or Windows 8) on my laptop. When I got to the screen where you can select the partition / drive to install the OS on, I wanted to delete all them were leaving (C: and D :) and recreate them for a bigger partition C:.)

    There was also a (System?-) partion with about 100 MB, do not remember the name yet, but I deleted it, too.
    I guess it was my big mistake, because then the installation has failed, and when I tried to restart, the screen where you set the partion was empty.

    No disk, none of the partitions is displayed.
    In the BIOS disk HARD is always displayed.

    So I think that, on this partition of 100 MB mysterious were drivers for the HARD disk or the SATA controller.
    I already searched the internet, Toshiba and HP Intel support center (because the SATA controller is done by intel) but I have not found the right drivers. I found a few tools like [this one | = 2 & selFamily = 2 & selSeries = 178 & selProduct = 790 & selSho rtMod = 773 & language = 17 & selOS = 29 & selType = all & yearupl = DST & monthupload = & dayupload = & useDate = null & mode = all Machines & search = & action = search & macId = & country = 12 & electedLanguage s = 17 & type = all & page = 3 & ID = 68573 & DISO = 2 9 & driverLanguage = 42] , but it is an application that cannot be incorporated as driver installation (can?)

    So my question is: where can I find the right drivers for my HARD drive respectively the SATA controller?

    Thank you very much!


    As far as I know that the Satellite L350 - 20 H belongs to the PSLD8E series.
    All the drivers for this unit are on the page of the Toshiba UE driver
    The same page that you posted your original message.

    The Storage Manager seems to be the right package that contains the SATA driver.
    But I put t think that your problem is related to the missing SATA driver.

    The fact is that the HARD drive and partitions were visible before you delete the partition, and you have not added the SATA drivers.
    So I guess that the HARD drive needs to be formatted before you start the installation of the OS

    Guess what? Download and create a partition bootable stick usign the GParted Live free software
    Then you could boot from the USB key, could start the GParted and could create new partitions. After this attempt to boot from the new drive Win 7

    I think to buy a copy retail Windows 7 64 - bit to do a completely new install on my laptop HP G62-a18SA (XC302EA #ABU) and so am trying to gather and record the necessary drivers, I have to reinstall later.

    Can someone tell me where I can download the AMD SATA controller for this laptop?  Device Manager appears in the:

    Driver provider: AMD

    Driver date: 10/07/2009

    Driver version:

    It is not listed in the downloads section of driver for this laptop in particular HP support site.

    AMD is different from that of Intel, a Sata driver is not required to install W7.

    There are many backup programs free driver you can use to back up the existing drivers and then use this backup to reinstall it on the new facility.


  • How to add a SATA controller driver to the ESXi 3.5 installation CD (edited)

    Salvation to the whole community,

    Today, I downloaded and tried to install VMWare ESXi on a Core Duo Quad system.

    The motherboard is an ASUS P5KPL-CM with Intel G31and ICH7 Chipsets.

    The pc is equipped with a SATA hard drive.

    The question is:

    Immediately after clicking on install, I get a message as "impossible to find a support machine to write the VMWare ESXi server.

    Related to the issue I have add this question:

    It is essential that the HDD on the installation location, I have to be a VIRGIN or EMPTY? Or it is not?

    In other words, what happens if ESXi installer detects something on the disc (i.e. the drive entirely with a Windows bootable partition)? ESXi Installer has an option of disc clear or if no partition is present, the result is the issue I described above?

    I ask because I see that here are mentioned some systems with ICH7 chipset.

    Of course, it's a matter of controller. On this pc, Windows XP Pro installed fine, no SATA driver required.

    This is the reason for this post.

    Thank you all so you help me with the right tip.


    Hi Robert, VMware has changed the way ICH7 controllers are recognized between update 2 and update 3.  With neither release were connected ICH7 readers supported, but with update 3, the controller is supported for CD-ROMs only.

    To get there I would be supported installation update 2.   You can then change oem.tgz to reverse changes 3 fact update.  Take a look at this thread for more information -  You can also try this install method -

  • What SATA controller driver is necessary for Win XP on Satellite L300 BRAND


    I need to get rid of vista on my new laptop preinstalled and was going to put Win XP. Of course, Win XP doesn't have SATA support. I've read on how to do (i.e. nlite drivers during the installation of Win XP disk in some way), but I could not find the drivers for it on the web page of Toshiba. Could someone please help and point me to the correct driver for this machine?

    Thank you very much in advance,

    What you need is the Intel Storage Manager.
    The European Toshiba page provides this crib of storage, but you can also download it from the page of Intel. Simply search for Intel Matrix Storage Manager.

    The package contains files different and different SATA drivers for different chipsets.

    Check it out I m that the Storage Manager is the key ;)

    Good bye

  • R720 can I connect drive sas/sata hard without controller card?

    I have a r720 without raid card.  When I plug a ssd or disc of 15 k / 10 k sas on the hotswap backplane, chassis recognizes the drive is connected (I get an orange light and lcd to alert that the disc is removed when I go out).  However, the bios and the operating system does not recognize any disks hotswap (they see only the optical drive connected to the ports on the motherboard sata.

    Do I need a controller card to use drives connected on the backplane, or is it possible to use backplane without controller card?  I didn't need raid functionality.

    Thanks in advance.


    Hello Shane

    Do I need a controller card to use drives connected on the backplane, or is it possible to use backplane without controller card?  I didn't need raid functionality.

    Yes, you must have a controller connected to the bottom of basket. If you have purchased the system without a RAID controller should have a SAS cable that goes from the backplane to the slot of controller S110 chipset on the system board.

    You can use the S110 SATA controller on board for communication with backplane. Well, there are limits to the S110 controller, so may not suit your needs. You can probably buy LSI 9207 if you want readers to run in a non-RAID. The other options are a H710 PERC; which you can set the readers to the single drive RAID 0 s. In this State, they function as drives no RAID. You can also get a H310. The H310 supports the RAID mode, but we have added a few features to the H310 who do not find in previous versions of the card. In doing so, it reduced performance when operating in a mode non-RAID.

    The reason why I say that you'll probably want another controller than the S110 is because you mentioned that you have SAS disks. The S110 is a single SATA controller. In addition, the S110 is supported up to 4 discs.

    To access the BIOS RAID make sure the S110 is turned on in THE system BIOS. In the BIOS, go to SATA settings. In the menu choose the RAID mode. It will turn on the S110 controller. You can configure the drives in the BIOS S110 when booting with the CTL R. I do not know what operating system, you perform the installation, but the S110 is compatible with Windows.

    Thank you

  • Change of type PowerEdge 2950 SAS SATA Drive

    I (will) will soon receive a PE2950 which has a backplane SAS (PN610) and (YF437) SAS RAID card.

    I would like to convert it to use SATA hard drives and have capabiltiy RAID.

    the only things I need to change, is the backplane and the RAID controller?  or is it more than that?

    Thank you

    You should not have to replace the raid controller or the bottom of basket; SAS hardware is compatible SATA (the other way around does not apply (for example a SATA controller will not work with a SAS drive)).

    You however need will lead carriers, who will not sell Dell on their own, so that you can reuse those among the SAS readers, buy the disk SATA (or SAS) more small/less expensive that Dell is selling, or see if you can find the drive carrier (screws) on ebay or not.

  • Reference 12-Bay SAS Backplane R510 Dell - SAS/Sata limited by the controller or backplane?


    The question in the title really.  I'm interested to know if backplane SAS in the R510s Bay 12 is limited to 6G SAS / 3G SATA because of the Expander or default controllers provided with it?  I am interested in one for a storage server but would use a circuit LSI 9211-8i in COMPUTER mode that supports 6 G SAS/SATA, it would be good to get SATA 6 G if possible speeds.

    Is this possible or am I limited by backplane expander himself control?

    Thank you


    Hello Chris

    There are controllers supported on the R510 SAS 2.0 compatible and able to 6 Gbps SAS and SATA drives. Backplane is compatible SAS 2.0.

    would be to use an LSI 9211-8i in mode COMPUTER circuit that supports 6 G SAS/SATA

    I do not show it is a validated controller, so I can't say with certainty whether Yes or no backplane will work correctly with this controller.

    Thank you

  • Satellite U400-183 lower upgrade to XP - driver for the SATA controller


    There is a blue screen during the installation of xp because the missing drivers (SATA controller).
    Could not find the driver, nor on the toshiba Web site on intels.

    Someone who can help? Thank you very much.



    Satellite U400-183 seems to belong to the series of PCU44E. Right?
    The European driver Toshiba page provides the drivers for this model.
    You can find on the page of the driver for Win XP Intel Storage Manager and this package contains the SATA drivers.

    But look, man here in the forum, you can find many comments about the installation of the SATA driver why you n t use the search option?

    The best way to install the SATA drivers is the use of nLite.
    He tool free s (you can find it on the internet) and it helps you integrate SATA drivers into the Win XP disc!

    I did it and it worked for me

    All we hear is an opinion, not a fact.
    All we see is a point of view, not the truth.
    [Marcus Aurelius]

    I'd rather than PCIe PCI for this purpose.

    HP liked SIIG for a number of their SATA PCI slot cards.  SIIG has updaters for these maps on its web site, and the pilots understand place in Windows 8.  Here's what I recommend if you want to only two new SATA internal ports:

    There is also a card HP SIIG eSATA that HP has used, and I have also used that... it worked great.  It has two eSATA ports and no port SATA internal:

    In addition, you can connect a single SATA hard drive on an eSATA port (the reader would need external power supply) for formatting, etc.  For that you need a cable with eSATA on one end and a connector type SATA internal regular on others... it is so much easier than to open the box and play with the internal cables.  The best quality I've found for those who are or  Opt for a shorter (1 m) rather than a longer therefor version if you choose to do so, in order to reduce the risk of interference (which I have never seen this):

    Macgurus told them are indicated for the generation SATA I, II and III, and they are a little cheaper for a length of 1 m of the granite.  Both are excellent companies.

    Finally, there is a HP SIIG PCI with combined eSATA/SATA, with a player external eSATA and SATA port internal:

    I'd stick with HP SIIG solutions and probably buy directly from HP for this unless you can find the same for much less expensive on eBay.  The cards have had several revisions, and I think that if you get your HP, you would later.

  • I have a 'C' IDE drive failure I have a SATA drive connected via a PCI-SATA controller card. I want to change from hard disk IDE 'C' on the SATA drive. What are the steps to achieve this?

    Running Windows XP Home, I want to change hard drive as described above.

    As a result, I have a USB hard drive, which I copied the hard drive of the original 'C', before it fails altogether.

    Is it possible to copy this USB drive on my SATA hard drive and have as my primary hard drive?
    Keeping in mind of the SATA hard drive, connected via a PCI-SATA controller card.

    Unless your third sata card supports the option to boot from this map, its not going to work. Not all sata cards are bootable.

  • T420 - Question of disk drive (wired Sata + SAS / Sata 2.5 / 3.5 is possible?)


    I bought the T420 PowerEdge with a single SATA drive. I've added 3 more to max on internally wired to 4

    I wonder, do I ALSO have to add the hot swap 2.5 or 3.5 and all have work. I guess I have to buy a special raid card if it is at all possible.

    I want to be able to do is have the 4 cables + start adding the other 2.5 or 3.5 (based on price) and build slowly upward.

    If possible, could you please recommend this card, I have to use to get there?

    Thank you very much


    Unfortunately, you wouldn't be able to do, it is because the chassis are different depending on the storage option selected. T420 storage options are the

    1                                   2                                 3

    • Player 4 option x 3.5 inches: (#1).

      • Cable drive bays
      • SAS and SATA disk drive

    8 x 3.5 or 2.5-inch drive option(#2)

    • Hot swappable drive bays
    • SAS, SATA or SSD drives

    option 16 x 2.5 in drive: (#3)

    • Hot swappable drive bays
    • SAS, SATA or SSD drives

    So the question is the chassis are actually different by the selected option.

    Let me know if it helps.

  • How to extract all the drives SAS/SATA and Ethernet port speed of the link command line?


    Do you know if supports Windows OS built in order to extract all the SAS/SATA drives and ports Ethernet link speed?

    i.e. for SATA3 drive it show 6 Gbps, for DIS3 drive it will show 12 Gbps, to present the current link speed.

    i.e. for Ethernet 10 G, it will show 10 Gbit/s while the current connection speed is at 10 Gbps.

    I need the command to create a batch file to run bike test to check all connection speeds are correct in each cycle the system power runs, if the Windows operating system does not support built in order to achieve this, please send us any tool of 3rd - party with the support of the command line to do this.

    Thanks in advance.
