I has a windows server 2000 server that I need to upgrade to server 2003. the motherboard is an Asus p4c800-e, and it has 2 hard drives via scsi set up raid 1. when I try to load 2003, I hit f6  to load the scsi drivers, but windows wioll not see the disks. Now, I have never loaded scsi drivers before, so I am wondering if I am missing something and if you all could point me in the right direction.

    Did you create a scsi driver floppy and put that floppy in the drive  when prompted?

    You'll need to find drivers that are win2k3 compatable.
