Server 2012 & Tyan MB

I have a Tyan Tiger I7320 (S5350-1U) Server board running server 2003.  I want to wipe & reload with Server 2012.  I want to run the Onboard Sata Raid (6300ESB) for my system drives but when I go into the 2012 setup & it gets to the drives part of the setup it says it can't find the drive.  It does give me the option to loacate a driver.  I have tried every driver I can find on both Tyan's & Intel's websites but no go.  I have tried Windows Vista, Win 7, & server 2008 drivers.  The MB only has one expansion slot & I'm already using that for my data drive raid controller so I can't add another controller.  Anyone had any luck installing Server 2012 on older hardware?  Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

You identified the issue. Until there is a valid 2012 driver for the components, there is nothing that can be done.
MB vendors often have a 5-7 years that they maintain update.
