After some very long testing and swapping of hardware, our server still cannot recognize the raid 10 we have set up. First thoughts run to driver issue, but the driver and copy of windows server 2003 standard x64 we used on this server are the same ones we have used on three other identical servers, without fail.
We have RMA'd the motherboard with CPU's and memory to Supermicro and they have found that they can install all versions of windows just fine. They shipped this back to us, which made us think that it was the back plane that was screwing up the raid, so we got a replacement back plane. This still creates the same "Windows cannot find hard disks, setup will now exit" once the proper drivers are copied upon windows setup.
Please someone help, the tech support at Supermicro doesn't know a thing.
*EDIT* Windows recognizes drives through the back plane, but not when in a RAID. RAID type is Intel, using Intel server ESB2 drivers.
