Windows XP and ML350 and ML380 servers

We have a ML350 with E200i Raid controler and two SATA 250 GB hdd in it. (configured RAID 1+0)

And a ML380 with Smart array controler P400 and 8x Serial SCSI 146 GB hdd in it.first two disks RAID 1+0 and other six RAID 0

When we use smart start we can make the arrays on both machines Raid 1+0 without any problems.

But when we try to install Windows XP Pro SP2 the setup tells us there are no disk we can install to.

Can someone tell me what is wrong and provide me with the correct drivers wich can make it possible to install XP Pro on both machines that are needed for a test where running.
