DL380e Gen8 - Hyper-V Error

Hi All,


I have the following setup.


1 x DL380e Gen8

2 x 1TB SATA LFF Drives in RAID1 Setup running under a B120i Controller

8GB Memory

1 x QC Proc


I've installed Win 2008 R2  - and added Hyper-V Role


While installing a VM, after configuring the settings - Disk, Memory, Proc etc, while performing the Windows 2008 R2 installation on that VM - the installation cannot find any disks to continue the installation. It's requesting for drivers to detect the hardware.


Anyone can help about this?


Thanks a lot.

Any virtual machine install you're doing, especially a Windows 2008 Server guest, should be able to see the virtual hard drives okay.


This sounds more like a problem you'd want to post on some Microsoft Hyper-V forum, but what's your virtual machine look like?  Using virtual IDE or SCSI?  And you made a virtual drive and mounted it, I assume?
