I have a Dell PowerEdge 2850, with an old PERC 4 controller. In the installation wizard (using the latest Dell Server Assistant DVD), I run into a snag when trying to target my disk drive. It sees the array, but says that it cannot install there.

Any ideas how to get around this? I would like to be able to re-purpose these dinosaurs if at all possible.

Ah! Just found the driver I'm looking for here. After loading it up, I could install to the array without any problem.
