I am attempting to install WHS 2011 64bit on a new computer with two Hitachi 3TB drives in a RAID 1 configuration. So far my attempts have been "Unattended" installs, but each time I get back to the computer I have a screen saying "There was a problem during installation" and an option to Restart or view the error logs.
When I look at the error logs, the only WARNING item is "No configuration file found", but in general the log files indicate some initializing, then displays my devices (a dvd-rom drive and my hard-drive).
The last lines of the log file are:
BIOS requested boot disk is \Device\Harddisk0 \Partition0 Adding the specified system disk \\?\PhysicalDrive0 to the top of the drive list Boot disk found. Loading default string Getting static control to display the string Displaying the boot disk status message Did not find any drivers in the location specified Boot disk found. Loading default String Getting static control to display the string Displaying the boot disk status message User can't continue, leaving install button disabled Found applicable driver f:\<Path> (class=SCSIAdapter) Attempting to load driver X:\windows\INF\oem0.inf
When I restart, if I don't boot to CD (which runs the install as if I haven't done it before), then the POST screen simply says "No operating system".
I'm afraid that's not much to go on. When I can I'll try the install again and watch it more closely to see where it fails.
FYI, I'm using the following:
- GIGABYTE 880GA-UD3H motherboard
- 2 Hitachi 7200 RPM 3TB SATA3 drives (RAID 1 configuration using AMD SB850 RAID drivers)
- Asus DVD burner
My BIOS has the CD-Rom set as the first boot device, and harddisk as the second.
Any idea what is wrong?
