The following table identifies the SAS PCIe host bus adapter (HBA) options that are supported on the server at the time of this publication. If you have one of these SAS PCIe HBA options configured on your server and you are installing Microsoft Windows Server 2008 SP2, you will need to load the LSI mass storage driver for the PCIe HBA option. This LSI mass storage driver is available on the internal Oracle System Assistant USB flash drive and Oracle System Assistant provides tools for loading it.
