Can DELL T110 run SERVER 2012 R2 or, preferably, SERVER 2016. - Problems with installation

Trying to install SERVER 2012 R@ or Server 2016 on Dell T110.  Cannot get past the initial setup screen as it says there are no storage devices.  
I have 3 Drives in RAID 5 (newly created volume) - When I try to install 2012 or 2016 it tells me there are no storage devices - it doesn't see the integrated Perc S100 controller.  I have downloaded and expanded the Dell Pre-OS Deployment kit and I have to remove the "hide non compatible devices" to see any type of controller, but it does not load it or recognize the Volumes.

They will install, but you have to have either a disk with the RAID drivers installed and tell the install to use them or create a new install package that has the drivers in them. has info on doing the latter.

Thank you, but I was able to get the drivers installed and 2016 on the system myself.  I am having issues with OpenManage now.  Need to find out which version is supported on the T110.

I opened the DRVPK_APP_WIN_R288544 and RAID_DRVR_WIN_R245795 and found the driver I needed in one of these (I forgot which).  It allowed me to load the Perc S100 driver and then install SERVER 2016.

Test your performance.  The S100 controller is AWFUL.  Dell has no right selling it.  In performance tests I did with a client, it was SLOWER than a DVD drive.  We solved the problem by bypassing the S100 - just plug directly into onboard SATA ports and use software mirroring in Windows (the S100 uses software mirroring anyway).  The onboard SATA ports were 20x+ faster (again, test for yourself!)

Thank you for that insight.  I will look into it or possibly, add a 3rd party RAID with some cache.
