Which model of the Dl360 do you have?
ida is normally used on the Generation 1, which is a completely white
box, wheras the G2 has a black outfit, and uses the ciss driver.
But I've never seen an G1 with 1266 MHz, or were those very late series?

FWIW, in my former company I worked, I had some Dl360, G1 with 933 MHz
As OSType in the Setup tool I set Win NT4, which is sometimes important
for irq routing. I created a standard RAID 1 Volume, with no diag
partition whatsoever involved, and then 4.7-R and 4.8-R installed
without problems, I chose not to use bootmgr, but a standard mbr.
worked right out of the box.
Do you have a chance to try again with perhaps a 4.7-R disc?
