Insert the Adaptec Installation DVD, navigate to the linux driver folder, then copy the Adaptec AACRAID driver binary, aacraid-esxi5.0-184.108.40.206400.zip to a temporary location on the Windows build machine. Note: the version string in the file name may differ from the one above. After you copy the file, remove the Adaptec Installation DVD. The Adaptec RAID 6405 controller is compatible with SATA and SAS hard drives thanks to the included cable. Note: the screw to secure the RAID controller in the tower is not provided. This screw is supplied with the case of your computer.
Recommendation: If you are inexperienced with updating Adaptec SATA device drivers, we highly recommend downloading the DriverDoc driver update tool [Download DriverDoc - Product by Solvusoft]. DriverDoc takes away all of the hassle and headaches of updating your RAID 6405 drivers by downloading and updating them automatically.
When you use DriverDoc to update your SATA drivers, you can also use it to keep all of your other PC's drivers updated automatically. Providing access to a database of over 2,150,000 device drivers (with more added daily), you'll be sure to get the right drivers every time.
ABOUT SSL CERTIFICATES
Device drivers, such as those created specifically by Adaptec for the RAID 6405, facilitate clear communication between the SATA and the operating system.
RAID 6405 driver updates can be carried out manually with the Windows Device Manager, or automatically by downloading a driver update software utility.
Better hardware comptibility, increased features, and increased performance can be experienced from RAID 6405 driver updates. Conversely, installing the wrong SATA drivers can lead to software crashes, slower performance, and general computer instability.
