Hi GeeknHard,

Do you get this problem only when installing MS Server 2008 ?
Does your windows server 2008 system get this problem when it boots ?

Re: MS Server 2008

Yes the disk has been wiped. I get the message when trying to install MS Server 2008. What do I need to do to fix or prepare the drive for an OS install?

Thnx for your help btw.

Hi GeeknHard,

>> Yes the disk has been wiped.
I hope you did not lose any data.
Also i think you are referring to non OS drive here.

>> What do I need to do to fix or prepare the drive for an OS install?
Its always good to find out the root cause (and solution) for the problem,
so that you are well prepared when the problem occurs again.
But if time is a constraint then, you can plan to re-install the OS all over again.
