Muzawwir,

* You need to have a USB Floppy Drive to install OS.


Steps
1)Download the RAID controller driver from below link

2)Extract the files and copy to a floppy.

3)Place the prepared Floppy in USB Floppy drive and inturn connect the floppy drive to your server

4) Power On your server press F8 to COnfigure the Bios and RAID.

5) Select the required RAID Level

6) Boot from the OS cd, Press f2 to load additional SCSI driver, then when asked point to the driver in Floppy.

7) Continue installation as usuall.

8) other Drivers can be downloaded from here.
