I must install windows 2012 on a Dell T5400 precision workstation.

The computer has 2 SSD configured in RAID 1 (mirror).

I cannot find drivers to report their state in windows. There is no point to use raid 1 if I cannot be warned when there's a failure.

Thanks

I would contact Dell and request the release Windows Server 2012 drivers for their hardware. – Ramhound Jun 19 '13 at 15:04

Try the Win7 Driver. You'd be surprised how often this works. For a long time Vista drivers would work in 7 before 7 was widely adopted, and even today when installing 8, you can get away with using 7 drivers. For 2012 there's one gotcha, and that's you need to use Win7 x64 drivers, as their is no x86 version of 2012.

Have you tried searching by serial? what's the service tag of that model? – MDT Guy Jun 19 '13 at 16:22
    
There's no win 7 drivers, but vista x64 is working. thx – bokan Jun 20 '13 at 9:11
    
I have noticed that the manager kills the system (blue screen) when clicking on refresh after replacing a drive. – bokan Jun 21 '13 at 11:14

Was not that easy to find a working driver even for windows 7.

I used this one and it worked : http://downloads.dell.com/FOLDER98298M/2/Intel_Rapid-Storage-Technolo_A04_R264763.exe Note that it require .NET 3.5 feature to be installed.

I did not find a way to send alert by mail yet
