RE: Qlogic ISP1040B driver support
I think you answered your own question. That is, the vendor doesn't support
the controller in Vista. I don't think Microsoft writes drivers for 3rd
party vendors, so don't look for that to happen. It's possible some other
source could provide a driver that works with your controller. I've noted
drivers made available by sources other than by the original manufacturer.
You could try that approach, but don't hold your breath. Google would be
your friend in this quest.
