Installation Failure

I'm unable to install SBS4.5 onto the 1850R. The system has two PIII550 processor, 512MB RAM, 3 9.1GB Ultra SCSI 2 10K drives and a SMart Array 3200 controller. I have run smartsart 4.90 manual install and selected SBS 4.5. Configured as RAID 5 and booted from the SBS 4.5 install Disks. I have specified SCSI devices and selected the Compaq Array controller from DISK 2 of the 5 disks created from the Windows NT SSD on the smartstart 4.90 CD. After specifying the SCSI driver and continuing the install fails with the message
Setup is unable to locate a CD ROM drive. Setup cannot continue. Press F3 to exit.

I would appreciate any help I can get to install this OS onto the server.

Re: Installation Failure

After you load the Compaq Drive Array driver, when you see OTHER. Scroll to the very top and there you will see cdrom IDE ATAPI 1.2. These drivers are native to SBS.
We are here for a good time, not a long time!

Re: Installation Failure

Thanks Mark but that did not help, had already tried this. I found the issue though, I updated the ATAPI driver on the boot disk with the one from NT 4.0 SP6.
