I am attempting to install Windows Server 2008 on a set of new SAS drives in my Dell PowerEdge 2950. The original HDs are in the system, running Server 2003. I boot to the USB drive (8gigs) where my setup files are and installation starts.
After 25% of the "Copying Files" stage, it jumps to 100% and errors out. The error I get is the good ol' 0x80070070 which is :
Windows cannot install required files, Make sure all files required for installation are available, and restart the installation. Error code 0x80070070
The target drive is brand new, with a new primary partition of 69gigs. I've tried to delete the partion, reformat, rebuild the virtual drive in the raid configuration. I've tried different USB thumb drives as well as different copies of Server 2008 (32bit, 64bit, Standard and Enterprise). What gives??!!
