Windows could not prepare the computer to boot into the next phase of installation

I have an HP Proliant MicroServer. Bios is set to use Raid. The Raid setup is configured for Raid 10 using four 2 TB drives. I see the drives in the Raid controller setup. When I try to load windows, I get to the point where I need to reboot and i get the message, "Windows could not prepare the computer to boot into the next phase of installation. To install Windows, restart the installation." I have tried multiple sized partitions. I have formatted the drive prior to attempting the OS install. BIOS version 041. AMD Turion II Neo N40L Dual-Core Processor, Speed 1500MHz, core count 2.  Memory, 6GB.

This happens for Windows Server 2008 R2 as well as Windows Server 2012.

Any help would be appreciated.
