I create the RAID but it shows uninitialized and when I run windows 2008 server install, it doesn't see the drives.

I guess the RAID is not initialized.

Are your drives formatted? Does windows 2008 see the partition?

Were the drives preformatted to ntfs? if not that probably is your problem.
Try Paragon partition manager, it should help you figure out what is going on.

If I understand the Drives should first showup in windows then you format them as NTFS, but they don't show up at all.

I fixed the problem of the drivers.
I copied the Supermicro Raid drivers to the flush drive, run w2008 installation it didn't show any partition but there is a button that says Load drivers, so I did and it worked ............But the installation of W2008 fails at the expandig files level. I guess this failure is due to the bad media or image, it's hard to tell.
