I have just taken delivery of the base spec Microserver gen8. I have installed a WD 1Tb drive in slot 1, and the BIOS/RAID controller finds it. However when I come to install Win server 2012 r2 it cannot find a drive and asks for a driver. I have downloaded all 3 drivers from the HP site onto a usb stick, which is recognised by the installer, but none of the drivers (all .exe files) are deemed valid by the installer.
Can anyone tell me how to get beyond square one on this? I am embarrassed to have fallen at this first basic hurdle!!
(if only it was esxi then I wouldn't have any wretched driver issues, but the box cannot run esxi)
