I'm trying to locate the System Build and Update Utility for the Dell PowerEdge SC1430
I was on the Dell support site for this server. It shows that this particular server does support Windows server 2008 R2.
http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/19/product-support/servicetag/DMZD6F1/drivers?s=BSD 

However the systems build an update utility does not show up in a drop-down lists the system management under Windows server 2000 R2. There are some utilities that show up under Windows server 2003 selections.

I made the dreaded call to Dell server support. They no longer offer for servers that are out of warranty. The tech did try to point me in the right direction for the drivers but I was already there. He put me on hold for bad 10 minutes and came back and told me that there never was a systems build and update utility disk for the server. Well I knew that was wrong. The server came with one but it's an older version 5.3. It only supports up to Windows server 2003

I continued searching looking for the SBUU and SUU ISO downloads -  and it became quite confusing because I found version numbers were 2.2 and 2.4 which supposedly are newer. My server is not compatible with this version.

That the server supports Windows server 2008 R2 on the Dell support page, there has to be a systems build and the utility disk to install it.
I read were some folks just use the Windows server 2008 R2 operating system disk. I tried that but it could not find the sas controller

Most of my server experience is working with the HP ProLiant servers using their SmartStart disk - which works quite well.

I would appreciate any help locating the correct utility disk for this particular server.
