Windows Server 2008 Raid Hard Drives not found

Hi,

I am new to this but we recently bought a Dell Poweredge T320 which has a RAID 1 configuration. Upon installation Windows Server 2008 R2 it says that there are no "signed device drivers found". I then went to the Dell website where I downloaded the RAID driver but it is an .exe format so when I place it on my flash drive browse to it, the OS does not see it.
Is there something that I'm missing? Any help would be appreciated it. Thanks..

Hi,

I found out how to get it to work. I had to use winrar to extract the files first before putting it onto my flash drive.

There is also a "hard drive" (ZPE) version that is simply a self-extracting EXE for this purpose.
