The thing is that probably the server isn't recognizing the HDD, if the HDD is SCSI or even SATA you have to provide the drivers when the installation starts, look at the bottom of the screen at the very beginning phase, then press F6. In order to do that you have to put the drivers in a 3 1/2 Floppy Disc.

You would create a slipsteamed cd that includes the drivers.
You would identify the hardware and get the drivers for that hardware.
