You need the driver for the RAID Controller for Server 2008. You need to insert a disk with the driver during install.

Is it a branded server or custom build?

Did you browse for the driver? That is essential, if you can't see the discs, click on "Load Drives" and then browse your drivers. Server 2008 does not do this automatically for you.
