Loading SBS2003 R2 on PE T605 w/Sata controller. Getting STOP error 7B

I am getting the imfamous Invalid Drive STOP error while trying to load SBS 2003 R2 on a new T605.

 

I have tried the following:

- Used the Dell Build Utility to load the system with an original SBS Disk 1. 

- Used the Dell Build Utility to load the system with a SBS Disk 1 with the Sata driver Slipstreamed using nLite.  (Get STOP error further into the reboot in this case.

I don't have a floppy drive in the server or in any other running machine.  I have some and could cobble together a machine to make the driver Floppy and use the F6 option.  

Is there another way?  (I find it hard to believe that MS hasn't realized we will be using Flash drives for this kind of thing.)

One Note: I have an Action Pack DVD of SBS 2003 R2.  The Dell Build util doesn't support loading from a DVD so I burned all the CD? folders to CD.  Don't think there is any difference,  but thought I'd mention it.

 

Thanks,

ChipConnJohn
