i found that I need the dell server 8.5 this fixes the issue. it is for a 2650 any one know where I can download the ISO
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,
