How do i re-install windows server 2003 x64 in our Dell Power Edge R300 Server?

Hi All,

Our company has a Dell Power Edge R300 Server (Rack Type) with Server 2003 x64 Standard Edition which is used for Exchange Server 2007 Standard Edition.

Now we are planning to re-build the exchange server, but we have exchange information store error..

Then we planned to re-install the server 2003 through bootable Server 2003 x64 DVD which boots successfully and further it gives us the below error,

Setup did not find any hard disk installed in your computer. Make sure any hard disk drives are powered on and properly connected. And any disk related configuration is correct.ect.

Press F3 to quit. 

Then i tried to boot from the Dell Systems Build and Update Utility, it doesnt boot and further server 2003 starts. ( I checked the Dell DVD by booting it in another machine it boots) 

Do i need to uninstall the Dell System Administration or Installation files from the system and then try booting?

Please help!!!

Thank you
