Tried using Intel DA and it fails because ti will only ecept an R2 version of the Opsys so fails to allow load of SBS2008 [Server2008sp2].

So tried using SBS DVD and flash drive w/ESRTII drivers. After getting drivers from flash drive it fails saying it can't access the CD/DVD drive (which is also on the ESRTII hardware.)

OK, I solved it and will record here so others may not have to go through this

Original Config  Intel S3420GP Board, Two Drives in Raid 1 ESRTII Config; CD/DVD shows up as part of the ESRTII config when you boot. Flash Drive has ESRTII drivers on it.

Boot from CD, Select Install, will ask various ??'s re: User, server name, etc. and then will get to panel where it would show available Partitions. IT SHOWS the ESRTII .5TB Raid 1 Partition. At this point you can choose to click on Load Driver or not, it doesn't matter, the same thing happens, After clicking Next, the install fails right as it would being "Copying Files ...". The message shown says it is missing software necessary to connect to the CD/DVD (the same one it has been talking to for the last few minutes!) ...

After many different tries varying various variables I finally decided to attached my USB CD/DVD RW. I then, in the BIOS, configured it as the 1st boot device, and the ESRTII as the second. I also had the Flash Drive plugged in.

I booted to the DVD. This time when it got to the panel where it showed the partitions available, It did NOT SHOW ANY. I clicked load driver, selected the ESRTII driver from the flash drive. The process now showed the ESRTII Raid 1 partition, and when I hit next, it started copying files!! The rest of the install was a piece of cake!
