I have used two methods to attempt installation.  Both fail with no errors in the Event Viewer:
1. Add Role Wizard &,
2. Add/Remove Windows Components in the Control Panel.

This is a new Dell PE700 and its only role will be as a web server.

Has anyone experienced this issue?

Thanks,

Nathan

Hi nhallmark,
Exactly what happens when you try to install?
Do you get an error messages?  What stage does the installer get up to?

Also, which version of Server 2003 is it?  SBS, Server, Web Edition, Enterprise?

Windows 2003 Standard Server.

The process proceeds without error until the IIS installation begins.  At this point, all stops and I am advised that IIS cannot install.  Popup advises to go through Add/Remove Windows components.  Tried with identical results.

Event Viewer logs no error concerning the install.

Baffles me.  None of the normal avenues of reseach even come close to resolving this issue.

Thanks for you continued help.
