unable to detect SATA disk in Dl180 G5 with RAID 5 configuration

Hello,

I'm installing a ProLiant DL180 G5 with smart array e200/128 and six SATA disk (RAID 5 with the 6 disks).

Operating System is Windows Server 2003 Standard

When i'm create the first and second SATA disk as RAID 1 configuration, the server can detect the SATA disk and install windows 2003.

But when i'm create the Six SATA disk as RAID 5 configuration and try to install windows, give me the error message, unable to detect HDD, press F3 to Quit windows installation.

Can someone tell what i need to do ? need to change any setting in BIOS?

Thanks

Use F6 at beginning of windows installation and provide device drivers for your SmartArray E200 to windows installer.
