ServeRAID M5110 Isn't detected when attempting to install Microsoft Server 2008 r2

I have configured a RAID 5 on  a ServeRAID M5110 card.  I now stick the microsoft 2008 r2 disk in and it doesn't see the raid card as a hard drive.  I tried to download a RAID utility online but it is software to be used once the server is running.  

What am i doing wrong?

Does Windows server 2008 r2 have the correct drivers injected for that specific card?

Either load up the RAID driver manually or you can use IBM's ServerGuide to assist you installing Windows (it contains the drivers):
