No CD after 2003 R2 x64 install (DL180 G6)

After the installation of the Easy Setup CD and the 1st Windows 2003 R2 x64 CD, the OS asks for the second Windows CD but there is no CD drive detected (!!!).

It only happens in this situation. If I try to install Windows 2008 R2 x64, the CD drive is there.

I tried to install and update all the drivers from the HP website but no solution 'til now.

Any help?

I'm sorry but...

When I try to install from the Windows CD, the SAS HD is not detected by the setup and a blue screen is displayed.
How can I use these drivers during setup..?

Thanks again!

I found an alternate solution:

Entering SETUP end setting the 'SATA Configuration' as 'Compatible', I installed the OS successfully.

Let me change it back to AHCI and see what happens next...
