Installing 2nd NT on Dell PwrEdge 43000

By adriansu ·
I am in the process of trying to install NT on the E drive (1.5gb) of my Dell PowerEdge4300 which has an American Megatrends Perc controller. Reason for this is that I have installed a second processor and want to upgrade first NT instance to multi-processor files.

Problem I have is as follows:
1) I start NT CD and select F6 to bypass the auto-selection. I now put in DISKETTE for PERC controller and "declare" this to NT.

2) I then proceed to installing a new instance, this works fine as I can select the drive to install to, NT then formats it but now the problem starts.

3) After formatting the drive, the NT install goes back to the DISKETTE (to load the drivers for real I presume) but it fails to load the drivers saying I have a problem with the DISK or CD-ROM.

I have tried several diskettes including downloading latest version from the web, all to no avial.

Anyone come across this before?. Any ideas on the solution?.
