The following table identifies the SAS external PCIe host bus adapter (HBA) option that is supported on the Oracle Server X5-4 at the time of this publication. If you have this SAS external PCIe HBA configured on your server and you are installing Microsoft Windows Server 2012 or 2012 R2, you need to load the mass storage driver for the HBA when you install the Windows Server 2012 or 2012 R2 operating system. This mass storage driver is available on the internal Oracle System Assistant USB flash drive.
Instructions for loading the mass storage driver during the Windows Server 2012 or 2012 R2 installation are provided in Installing Windows Server 2012 or 2012 R2 on a Single System Manually.
If your server does not have an internal Oracle System Assistant USB flash drive, you can download the ISO image that includes the drivers. For download instructions, refer to Getting Server Firmware and Software in Oracle Server X5-4 Installation Guide.
