I am trying to install Windows Server 2003 on a Raid 5 with 2 dual core Zeon processors and 8gb ram.  I am using a Valid install disk for the server software but everytime the setup program gets to the point that it needs to restart the server, it begins the setup process from the beginning and never reaches the next step.  I have deleted and rebuilt the raid, I have changed out the operating order of the drives in the raid and have even exchanged some of the drives for other drives that I know work and then rebuilt the raid again to compensate for the change in configuration.  I have checked bios settings and everything is set to default values, which were the settings that were always used before the server crashed and forced a reinstall of Server 2003.

What am I missing to get this server back online and if at all possible, I need an answer ASAP as I need to get this server back online today if possible.

Thanks for any help you all can give.
