Hi Experts, I am installing a fresh copy of SBS 2088 on a Dell 2970 Server with a raid 5 and a sata DVD drive. I get to the select language screen and click next and get an error
A required cd dvd drive device driver is missing

I cannot seem to find a fix for this. I have gone into the BIOS and changed the SATA from QDMA Mode to ATA Mode. After that I rebooted and it did not get to the language screen at all.

Thank you
