Install the os using the server installation cd that came with the system, it's in the cd pack. It will load all the correct drivers during setup/
Thank you, this works fine, but in my case its not the solution! I have an acronis image from our old server and restored it to the new DELL PowerEdge. Then I tried to make a repair installation, using the server2003 CD and F6 to integrate the drivers for the PERC 5/i using my USB-Floppy. The drivers are detected and files will be copied, but then I get the error "inaccessible boot device". I think I used the wrong drivers
One of the cd's in the pack is a drivers and diags cd. bung it in a desktop and follow the prompts, select drivers then your server and it will open a page with all the drivers for your sytem. You can get the correct drivers there.
I've tried to browse the CD and found the drivers for the PERC 5/i controller, but the installation ended with the same error. In all probability it was not enough to use this single driver. I tried this solution: I installed the OS with the help of the DELL DVD and found a folder named DRIVERS. I copied this folder to my USB Stick and made a new Server 2003 CD using nLite. I integrated all the drivers from the copied folder in this CD and now it works!! Thank you for your help
