I cannot get Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard to install on Hyper-V or SCVMM Console from the mounted ISO file or physical disk.
I keep getting this error at exactly
34% while Expanding Windows files
"Windows cannot install required files. The files may be corrupt or missing. Make sure all files required for installation are available and restart the installation. Error code: 0x80070570"
when installing from the ISO
I keep getting,
"A required CD/DVD device driver is missing. If you have a driver floppy disk, CD, DVD or USB flash drive, please insert it now.
Note: If the Windows installation media is in the CD/DVD drive, you can safely remove it for this step."
when installing from the DVD.
I can create Windows Server 2008 SP2 Virtual Machines all day long (as well as Server 2003, Windows 7 and Windows XP).
I have downloaded the ISO from the Microsoft Licensing site a couple of times to make sure the ISO is not corrupt. I know it works because I have burnt it to DVD and used it to build physical servers in my test lab.
My base server (SCVMM Console Machine) is currently running 2008 R2 with 6GB of RAM.
I have created several test servers using this console but always have errors installing 2008 R2.
To make sure it was not my current SCVMM machine, I built a second 2008 R2 server and ran the same tests... "Can I build a 2008 SP2 server...? CHECK, Can I build a Windows 7 machine...? CHECK, Can I build an R2 server...? NOPE".
I have tried creating an R2 virtual server using both the built-in Hyper-V Management Console and in SCVMM... both to no avail.
Somewhere during a Google search I ran across a post that said something about having the proper RAID controller drivers available... but how would I go about finding those drivers?
Let me know what other information you would need to help me get 2008 R2 installed in my virtual environment.
Thanks in advance
