Server 2003 Enterprise

I have a IBM 8670 that I am attempting to load Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition R2 on. My challenge is that it hangs on the "Installing Devices" and will not move beyond that. I have tried using different media and versions of Enterprise with no success. The status bar continues to move and the mouse is responsive. The strange thing is I successfully loaded the Standard version with no issues. I need Enterprise as I have 8G of ram installed.

Any help or ideas will be appreciated.

I ended up pulling two of the 36G drives out that I was attempting to load the OS onto and replaced with two new drives. OS loaded fine after that. I'm still not sure what the issue was but obviously there was something about those drives that setup didnt like.

Thanks for your help.

It's possible that you may have some bad RAM.  Pull the last 4GB out and try it, since it worked with Standard.

I pulled the two sticks of memory I added and restarted the installation, same issue.

Is the BIOS up to date, and any firmware for RAID controllers or other devices?
