get the latest bios updates and then re-install.

if you have any special hardware, such as mass storage devices, that will take additional drivers, you will need to have them also

Good Luck,

Here is the link to Dell's Installation CD: http://ftp.us.dell.com/sysman/OM_5.2.0_ISM_A00.ISO

This is an .ISO image and will have to burnt as such to a CD.

Contact Server support if you run into any issues with it.
