Windows 2008 R2 install fails on ProLiant MicroServer G7 N40L

[ Edited ]

The system has 4 x 2.5SATA drives. I have tried RAID10 and RAID1. Used a 500GB partition for the Windows install. Every time the install gets all the way to the end of the initial install after it completes copying the Windows files and it about to reboot when I get:

 

Windows could not prepare the computer to boot in the next phase of the installation. To install Windows, restart the installation.

 

This has happened 3 separate times all at the same place. What am I missing here? Is there some incompatability issue with Windows 2008 R2? The system has 2GB of RAM. I can't tell what kind of memory it is (ECC, non-ECC, etc.)

 

Thanks, Michael

Update - so the install continues when changing drives back to IDE. So it fails using RAID (1 or 10).

anyone out want to respond?

 

This seems like a 2TB limitation, it works fine with smaller drives. Any comments?

Are you installing the AMD SB7xx/SB8xx Chipset Windows Server 2008 / Windows Server 2008 R2 64-bit SATA RAID Driver? This driver is required for the onboard RAID function.
