Hey everyone,


So I have been trying to install Windows Server 2008 (not R2) on a spare Dell PowerEdge 2650 but when prompted to choose an install location nothing shows, at the bottom of the window it says "No drives were found. Click load driver"


So I download the SAS RAID ,SCSI Drive and SCSI RAID drivers on the Dell website and put them on a USB and windows doesn't recognize the drivers.


This is driving me mad, I've tried all the suggestions found online and non are working :(


Any help is greatly appreciated.



also have pictures of BIOs settings and the RAID settings if this will assist anyone

are the drives new?  have they been initialized?  is the raid controller bad?  are you using 3 drives?  sounds like to me the raid controller is not being detected/seen.
