1) Your Windows media is MOST likely bad, or 2) you have the embedded/chipset RAID controller is enabled - disable it or load the driver for it.

Why RAID 0?! How many disks?

Hi hi,

Server is having 2 disks. Configured as RAID 0 as due to limit storage.

How can I disable RAID controller ?

Can yo uh elaborate? What "limit" are you talking about. RAID 0 is just such a dangerous and normally unacceptably risky configuration.

Disable the RAID controller in the BIOS ... disable on board RAID or set onboard SATA to AHCI instead of RAID.
