Alright,so i am trying to setup an IBM x3400 7976-KJG server where i have configured array and while booting the server i am able to see one logical drive attached.But when i am trying to install Windows Server 2003.Sometime after the "Welcome to Windows Setup" page when i hit ENTER=CONTINUE it hangs and i have to restart the server or sometime it shows up "Setup could not find any hard drive" error.I really have to finish this server job before evening.But i am totally screwed.One more thing i've already configured the attached SAS drive as Array and in the settings I've used SATA Off and SAS On option.Thank you.
