Proliant ML110 G5 - problem with Sata drivers on Windows Server 2003

Hello everyone,
i have bought this server and we need to install Windows Server 2003 on it. I have a problem when i want to install windows 2003. i have tried to install SATA driver when i install the windows.
So I plugged usb floppy, I copied drivers on it and during install. I pressed F6 and loaded driver from floppy (it was found like Adaptec SATA driver for Windows 32-bit. I was think that everything is fine but after formatting partitions and before copying files it shows screen with message: put disk labelled: Adaptec SATA Driver v1.00 (Windows 32 bit for 2000/XP/2003) to floppy. Then, i pressed ENTER to continued install Windows 2003. But some problem is appeared. SATA HDD doesn't found.
Then i have tried to install the other SATA driver, but it's same. it doesn't work.

Does anyone could help please ? Thank you before.

Hi,

Enclosed is the document which can be used to create a customized windows disk after we download the driver for onboard SATA at http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=15351&prodSeriesId=3577708&prodNameId=3577715&swEnvOID=1005&swLang=8&mode=2&taskId=135&swItem=MTX-295381a9a94e4182a62f7127b5

Once the disk is created, boot from the customized disk and there is no need to press F6 option.

Download Nlite software from http://nliteos.com/download.html

ok, I have download nlite and tried it. But i have 2 CD installer of Windows Server 2003 (disc 1 and disc 2). I read in internet, you use nlite to make new installer Windows Server 2003 with driver HP in it. So, when you install windows in HP, you don't press F6.
But a question, should i use nlite in disc 1 and disc 2 ?? or i just used it in disc 1 ??

Thank you very much.

@Mr. Srivinas
i have tried to install SATA driver and Windows Server 2003 with nlite. But it still can't work. SATA drive doesn't detect.

try disabling AHCI in the bios.
