Smart Array 641 not see HD when trying to install OS

Last Modified: 2012-05-08
I just got a Smart Array 641 and installed it on a ML350 G3. I made the Smart Array 641 the boot Controller. When I hit F8 to go and set the drive it sees it just fine. So I then let the server start up in the Windows Server 2003 OS install CD. But when I hit Enter to install new OS it says there is no Drive. How do I get it to see the Smart Array with the Hard Drive? I am only doing one Drive with a RAID 0. Should be simple but for me not so much.
