Adaptec do not appear to write offer drivers and it is not listed in M$ Compatibility List:

Googling is quicker than waiting for an answer....

edit. I don't even get my answer.


First I'd try those older xp or vista drivers if you have a 32 bit OS.

If they all fail because you have a 64 bit OS then you need to go one step farther.

One of three ways could do it. One is to use a virtual machine that can take control of the pci cards.
Another is to dual boot with an OS that can use it. I'd suspect that linux can but you'd have to test. Or dual boot to some MS OS that can support it.
Another may be to modify drivers.

I forget the last way I wanted to say.
