after dell support website telling me win2008 did not require a driver at install point because there wasn't one avaliable. i found a link after much hunting.
Dell PERC H200 Adapter, PERC H200 Integrated, PERC H200 Integrated Modular, PERC H200 Embedded, v.126.96.36.199, A01
Windows 2008 Server 64bit driver 188.8.131.52 for PERC H200 Controller @ http://ftp.dell.com/...vault-lto6.html
after loading that as an .iso through the virtual media, installation has deteced the drives, and ive managed to create a partion and i am continuin with install as we speak.
