SBS Server 2003 Install Problems

I am building a custom server  with 3 HD's in Raid 5 and a AMD Phenom II x4 and have been having alot of trouble trying to install this.

I have full version of SBS Server 2003 with legit Key. I can get it installed and everything boots up fine and I can get the Motherboard drivers loaded. When i go to install any updates I get errors that will not let me install Server 2003 SP1. Also when I run the server setup option the program crashes about halfway through and the icon disappears. I then have reinstalled SBS Server 2003 4 times now. I am at a loss on what is happening.

Has anyone had similar problems or ideas what to try?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

What SP is onboard your SBS 2K3 install CD??  I know that there are some systems that SBS 2003 won't install on without SP1 or SP2 already on board/slipstreamed in.

Verify that you media is current - if it doesn't have the latest SP on board, take a look at using nLite to slipstream the latest SP into your install to get your OS going...
