Hi,
what model of IBM you got there? and what I suggest you do is use the system cd that was delivered to you with the server and use that other wise you will have endless problems.

usually you install the serverraid cd after you install your server.
below is a link that you will find usefull

did you try my first link? If you extract the Windows 2003 image to a floppy, the driver is in: A:\windows\win2003\scsi\driver\server\i_v. Copy that to the root of the floppy. Then install Windows 2003, press F6 and tell it the location of the driver,

No it's not! I have a server x3400 next to me, which doesn't have the driver for the RAID controller and which doesn't even come with a CD containing the drivers separately. Not much impressed with IBM here...
