Driver yes, but who needs firmware update?

So you get the driver inbox and you avoid the floppy to install Windows Vista… But when you get to updating the firmware of the 2410SA, do you think you can escape? No, the storage manager from Adaptec isn’t compatible, so incompatible that Microsoft put a hard block on the installer. Note that such hard block requires sign-off from the owning company’s executive – i.e. Adaptec – and despite that Adaptec hasn’t publish neither even seem to work on publishing a compatible update. So how do you update the controller’s firmware in the mean time? Well please get a DOS floppy and go back in the stone age of computing…
 
Ah wait, Vista wants to reboot. There’s an update you know. One in a thousand others.
