I am installing SBS 2003 STd R2 onto a new Dell PowerEdge 840 server with 2Gb RAm

Server has an Adaptec 3405 sataII / SAS raid card installed - configured as raid 5 ( 3 x 160gb seagate sata II hdd)

Dell sinatllation cd process ok
Windows installation goes ok until tries to copy Adaptec driver files from floppy - gives error message Setup cannot copy the file arcsas.sys - if continue installation everything ok until Windows reboots then blue screens


I've recreated the driver floppy, doen a windows repar - nothing works.
