Windows 2003 ASR Restore with Raid Controller Driver

I have a windows 2003 with an ASR restore diskette and a windows backup on a USB drive.
The backup ws done using the Windows Backup utility.
I have to restore to the same server but a new array with larger hard drives.
I have a array controller with Raid 1 created.

When I boot from the Windows 2003 CD and do F2 and F6 for the ASR and specific SCSI driver,  I get the message "insufficient disk space"
Up to this pointthe screens do not display my Raid 1 that has been set up from the ACU.

I get this message even before plugging in the USB drive, (so I assume it doesn't know how large my backup file is)

My backup file is 10GB, my Raid 1 is 500GB.

Thank you.

Download the raid controller driver into a boot disk and put it in when prompting for SCSI drivers.
After this then use your ASR.
