Unofficial support site for NetCell Revolution Raid Cards



Ekstra info


User to user help




Dear visitor

All good things most come to an end. And now the end has come to my involvement in this site. The simple reason is that I don't have the time anymore. Work, family and a new (old) house has taken all my time,energy and then some.

As a last update I have made a messageboard where people with problems can post. I hope you will find it helpful.

This site will stay active at least the next couple of years.

Thank you for all the nice mails over the years. I hope I have helped  just a little bit ...



A couple of years back I bought a NetCell Revolution SR5103 5-PORT SATA RAID Controller on eBay. The card is fast, is supported by the recent Linux kernels and runs without drivers in both XP, Vista and Windows 7. A perfect setup for a guy like me who runs Ubuntu 8.10 but also have a Windows 7 - Beta 1 install for fun!

Unfortunately NetCell went out of business shortly after I bought the card and closed their website. That fact became a nasty problem for me when I had to reinstall my system and found out that I didn’t have a backup of the necessary files.

After the reinstall I spent a lot of time searching the Internet for especially the Storage Manager program. I got lucky on the Maximum PC forums (highly recommended: link) where I got hold of a quite recent version of the firmware and Storage Manager.

To help others in a similar situation I made a primitive version of this website. Since then I have recieved almost all the most recent versions of the official programs and a lot of other interresting info about the Netcell cards.

In the Downloads section you can see what I have now and in the Missing section you can see what I am still missing. In the Ekstra info section there is more information supplied by other users who have contacted me over the years.

Once again thank you to all who have contributed.

And remember: Backup is a good thing ;-)
