Performing the installation using external USB DVD drive and the installation will continue without any errors.


Check if there is a USB drive connected, if yes then disconnect those and restart and then do the installation.


You may also try the following steps:


1) Boot the Server with OS CD.
2) when you get "Install Now" screen connect the USB Drive (with the latest Disk controller drivers in it).
3) Install drivers and before selecting Disk for installation, disconnect the USB Drive.
4) Start the installation.

Also at times, when you install OS using the Windows media it will display an error SBS BIOSLOCK and installation will halt.


As a workaround install only using Windows HP OEM media but make sure to have disabled RAID support for the embedded B110i in the server BIOS; this way the SBS BIOSLOCK error will not be shown and installation will be successful.
