Perc H310 within Precision Workstation 5600s not working
I'm having a problem similar to http://www.itninja.com/question/dell-perc-h310-drivers-for-precision-t-3600-for-kbe
The driver feed has my system listed and installed, I've added the driver manually to the \\k2200\drivers\windows_7_x64\dell_perc8_sas folder which I created, all drivers have been recached, a new KBE has been created but its still failing during k-image deployment.
The raid card is setup as a default single drive raid 0 which comes default from Dell.
The error shown is "Failed to create item for C:\boot: The system cannot find the path specified". This image works for other systems and all preinstallation tasks are present on the image page.
What am I doing wrong?
**Update: I copied those same drivers to the KBE driver folder in the hopes that I had put the drivers in the wrong area, but its still not working after creating yet another new KBE.
**Update 2: I have two different drive format preinstallation tasks. One is a batch script with the following:
format /q /y /fs:ntfs c:
The second task looks to be the default that came with the kbox, its a diskpart script with the following:
select volume 0 remove all noerr select disk 0 clean create partition primary assign letter="C" active exit
I guess I need to know if the first one I'm using is a script created by and left over from the previous guy who was doing this job?

I think I figured out my problem. I had a big mixup with 32 and 64bit drivers. We use the 32bit KBE for all images including our 64bit kimages and I had made 3 mistakes in this order:
#1: I placed the missing perc card 64bit driver in the windows_7_x64, without placing it also in the KBE driver folder. Made a new kbe which would inevitably fail as I could not get the KBE to see the drive, much less image the system.
#2: I placed the 32bit perc driver in the windows_7_x86 thinking that "the KBE is 32bit so this should surely fix it!" not realizing that these folders are not for the KBE. Made a new KBE and FAIL.
#3: I placed the x64 perc driver in the 32bit KBE and remade the kbe, which then failed again as its a 32bit KBE and needs the 32bit driver.
FINALLY I placed the 32bit perc driver in the 32bit KBE folder and its imaging. Wheewwwww.....
