Dell Powerwdge T110 BSOD

Hi Experts,
Im trying to install Windows 2k3 32bit (licensed version) on to a Dell server. Ive tried the usual boot from CD and install the drivers via a USB floppy but the installation BSOD with either error 0x000000a or 0x0000007. Ive tried using the Dell systems management tools cd - created the install file but this also BSOD. The w2k3 disks are fine as these have been used before. Ive tried nlite and have added the raid and other drivers but again this BSOD. Any suggestions?

Cheers Simon

If installing directly from the Windows CD, you must load both the RAID driver and the Chipset driver (for the DVD drive) via floppy or using nLiteOS.com to integrate them into the install media.

Also, no matter what you do, you must have Service Pack 2 media ... the drivers will require it and the installation utility also requires it.  Use nLiteOS.com to integrate that as well.  

Keep in mind that only 2003 R2 Standard is "supported" on the T110.  There may or may not be a good reason for that.

Downloaded the correct media (R2) which worked a treat - didnt even need the floppy drive.
