hi Wilfred,

You need to modify the boot loader in the EFI shell. add the this line.
OsLoadOptions=/REDIRECT /NOVESA

Dear All,

I'm so grateful to responses that I got from Sakui and Yaqub because they really helped me in finally installing Windows 2003 Server Enterprise Edition on my rx7640 server. Especially adding the /Novesa parameters to the efi that Sakui showed me. Without that, I found out I wouldn't have completed. Thanks once more to the forum and many thanks to Sakui and Yaqub. May GOD richly bless and increase us all in all things.

Regards,
WAD
