DL590/64 5300 Raid Controller

Hi all,
new to this forum and am looking for help if possible. Just acquired a new DL590/64 without the server support CD (can't find one anywhere to buy or borrow...any help out there for this?...anyway, new to this EFI routine but was able to get win2k3-64 loaded OK using the on-board array controller. Wanted Ultra-3 so installed a 5300 dual channel controller, replaced the SCSI jumper board with a array bypass kit from an 8500 series (it fit but not sure if the right one or not since I have no documentation). Upon booting, array controller boots configuration seen and updated but then, won't boot any more. OS loader complains it can't find OS. I even re-arranged the boot controller priority to the 5300 from the on-board..tried luck. I even tried to reload OS on a new drive starting with the 5300 in but win2k3 setup complains it can't format the drive. Is there an EFI driver I'm missing?..any ideas?..thanks...would prob be OK if I had some documentation but Compaq seems to have abandoned this model and thrown it on the scrap heap along with support and downloads...thanks again..

BINGO....I knew someone here had the answers and would be willing to take the time to help me. Hopefully, I can help soemone else in the future. Just one issue though, your reference to the free ISO downloads is great but according to the server support matrix, the DL590/64 is not supported by any of the smart start CD's..evidently it has one all by itself?.......Thanks so much..
