Failure installing a Win2k3 upgrade
Posted on 2004-08-16
I am installing a Win2k3 upgrade to an existing Win2k3 server and get a problem when installing.
It correctly loads all the files for setup, configures and then reboots as it should but upon starting up again it says:
Setup was unable access files needed to continue. This should be caused by an error on the CD Media or the CD is no longer present in the drive. Rety or Cancel
The detail of the error is:
"Internal setup data
structures are corrupted (Phase 0)"
I have tried doing an upgrade a few times now incase there sas some corruption in the copy but with the same resule. Have also tried 2 different Win2k3 disks.
I really dont want to have to reinstall a new copy of windows.
Installing onto a Dell 2600 server, 2gb Ram, Raid 5 etc..
No other operating systmes on board.
