So i have a power edge 840 . I have 2 Hard Drives connected. they are both 80GB. I try to install windows server 2008 standard. it wont's let me install windows server 2008 because it says it won't recognize the hard drives. I look at that hard drive folder (tru windows's windows server 2008 disk) And i see that windows is installed on one of the hard drives. Then I try to boot up windows but it just says. '' Invalid boot.INI file'' then '' booting from c:\windows\'' and then '' NTDETECT fail '' And then it does nothing. If you press a key on the keyboard it will just reboot the server. it was amazing.I din't like this. i reinstalled windows server 2008 standard. NOTHING. All my members that are part of this server group are counting on me. Please Please help me.
Which RAID controller do you have?
If you have the PERC 6/i, then you must FIRST configure/initialize RAID. NO disk will be presented to the OS until you do.
