Dell F1DH Proxmox installation problem!

Hi guys,
We bought a server with the following specs:
DELL F1DH SERVER 2X XEON X5460 QUAD CORE CPU'S 32GB MEMORY 4x 1TB SATA HDD

I can't seem to find that particular Model: F1DH at any of Dell documentations!
Anyway, I asked the Datacentre, VegasNap (aka FiberHub) to try installing Proxmox (after they couldn't configure IPMI) but they said:

Code:

[COLOR=#000000][FONT=Verdana]The verbose details show the Installer attempts to load a number of drivers and[/FONT][/COLOR]

[COLOR=#000000][FONT=Verdana]THX;[/FONT][/COLOR]

I bought it from here:

Can anyone help me with this?
Is there possibility that I install Debian and then install Proxmox over it?

Thanks in advance for replying!

Simple advice but check the CD or reader.
The same error happends to me once with an old RW CD (booting was ok but then failed to load some drivers).
Using an USB stick solved my problem.

Do you believe it worked?
Thanks for help!

Now I only got one problem~!
Even though my server has 4 x 1TB disks, only one of them is shown on Proxmox (its called local)
How can I add the rest?
