Poor Disk Performance with DL160 B110i Raid Controller on Windows 2003 Server

We got some HP DL160 G6 servers for a project and we are trying to install Windows 2003 Server over these. It takes ages to install these servers when RAID enabled. We realized that the disk performance is too low. This does not happen if we disable raid functionality from BIOS. Also it does not happen in Windows Server 2008 installaion. Just in 2003 Server installation it is very slow. Even after installation it stays slow on all disk operations. I am pretty sure that it is a driver issue. I installe te latest driver from support page which does not help. Am I a missing something?

Hello,

do you have all firmware up2date? There is bios from november 2011.. As win2008 runs well, don't you have a option to run this system in your project?
