Windows 2003 Corrupt on Server

I have an install of Win2k3 server that is telling me that there are missing DLLs so it is not loading.  I put in the Windows CD to attempt to boot and repair the HD but since it is a RAID I need to install extra drivers.  I, however, do not have a Floppy Drive on this machine, so I cannot install the drivers.  The install is looking specifically for the A: drive for the drivers.  I have a USB flash drive that has the driver, but clearly that isn't going to help.  Anyone have any ideas?  I tried using N-Lite to add the driver, but that still did not work in loading the OS.

If you were unsuccessful with nlite then your best option is to go buy a floppy drive.  If this is an OEM server then often times the manufacturer will send you an OS install disk.  I know that Dell and HP send a disk that you boot first and then install OS.  That boot disk will load the appropriate drivers for you.

Found this shortly after posting.  It may help you

Apparently I just wasn't doing the right thing with NLite because I got it to work now.  Unfortunately when I boot into Windows it is telling me that my entire boot partition is free of any data (displaying as 51512mb, 51512 mb free)
