Hardware driver issue with SBS 2008

July 23rd, 2010 - 04:24 pm ET by Hart | Report spam
Hi,

I just installed a new SBS 2008 on HP ML350 server. After the install,
everything worked fine. I was able to connect USB drives, install a new DVD
RW drive, etc.

One point the system stopped responding, so I had to force it down and
rebooted it "from last working config", since then I have been having a lot
of issues with hardware drivers... The system started asking me to install
drivers for USB-based devices, SATA DVD RW drive (the new one I installed
earlier), and checking device manager, there are three "System Interrupt
Controller" not working properly, and then three "unknown drivces".
Precisely, it asks me to install drivers for:

IDE Controller
ATA Channel 0
ATA Channel 1
USB Receiver
DVD RW

I updated firmware from HP, so that may not be the issue. I also tried the
new Microsoft Fix It Center, it found the problem, but could not fix it --
there should not be any driver required for all these USB/SATA or internal
devices.

Does anyone know what could be the cause and how to fix it?

Thanks,

If it were me I'd uninstall that dvd you installed and buy another one.
It sounds like it's what horked things up.

Well, it is really nothing to do with that DVD drive, since it is not the
only one, and if I ignore the "install driver" message, I can still use the
device.

I can pretend not seeing any of those messages, and I do not see any problem
using those devices, but the real pain is that if I want to add a new device,
such as a USB device, it still asks for a driver, and if I refuse to do so,
there is no way to use that new device.
