I'm trying to configure the first node in a windows 2003 64bit enterprise cluster.

I've built a server, installed the prerequisits:
2 NICS - Configured (Public, Private:,
20GB shared storage (1 x 1GB Partition and 1 x 19 GB partition)

When I run the configuration to create a new cluster all the validation passes but when it tries to create / start the clustering service it fails.

Any ideas?

Any event ID's in the system log?

Does the install complete?

Try a minimal install, advanced button around select the node or quorum.

I've completed a fresh installed rather than play with the current one and the cluster services has installed successfully.
