Windows Home Server with SATA RAID Configuration
Posted on 2008-10-24
I'm setting up a newly purchased "barebones PC" configured as follows:
ECS GF6100-M754 Mobo
AMD Sempron Processor 754 3300+
HP DVD Writer
2 SATA 1TB Drives (Seagate Barracuda 7200/32MB/SATA-3G)
NO floppy drive
I have configured the bios for RAID enabled (they can be disabled or enabled, but there appears to be no option for IDE emulation).
The drives were initally configured in RAID 1 array, bootable.
Windows Home Server prompts on installation "Windows Home Server installation failed. Would you like to load additional storage drivers?"
After reading some postings, I did try disconnecting one of the SATA drives and rebooted to get the same error.
Any ideas how to get up and running?
