DL140, RIS Setup, Cannot find any HDDs

I get through pxe boot and setup starts, though w2k3 32bit server cannot find any HDD's. I have configured a raid 1 volume with 2 80GB disks and I have added the drivers to RIS as follows;

my ristndrd.sif file

[Unattended]
DriverSigningPolicy = Ignore
OemPreinstall = yes
OemPnpDriversPath = "drivers\broadcom;drivers\sata;drivers\sataraid;drivers\intel"
FileSystem = LeaveAlone
ExtendOEMPartition = 0
TargetPath = \WINDOWS
OemSkipEula = yes
InstallFilesPath = "\\%SERVERNAME%\RemInst\%INSTALLPATH%\%MACHINETYPE%"
LegacyNIC = 1

the driver files are in each folder at \\server\RemoteInstall\Setup\English\Images\$oem$\$1\drivers

also, the sys and infs are copied to the i386 folder.

The issue is simillar to this one with the exception of the server bieng a dl140 and I am dealing with sata not scsi;

Do I have the correct conifg? Which drivers are the correct drivers? I have been trying these two;

Re: DL140, RIS Setup, Cannot find any HDDs

Ok, After several hours of headbanging, I got an O/S installed. I wound up using nlite.

I found that I was using the wrong drivers. Shouls be the hp sas adapter for my specific server (g3 w/hot swap hdds)

Though, I still would love to know how I can get RIS to work properly with the textmode drivers for this servers hdds. Here is my ristndrd.sif file as it stands; are there any syntax errors? Missing files under [OEMBootFiles]?

Any help would be appreciated.
