xSeries 346 Windows Server 2003 ServRaid Install Boot Loop Issue

I installed server 2003 standard edition with no problems. When the server rebooted to finish the install the server 2003 screen came up for just a second and then the screen goes blank and the server reboots. I'm currently doing a full format on the partition for server 2003 to check for drive errors. What other problems might cause the rebooting?

Thanks!

Disk corrupted ?

As you said, it is new fresh installation? So have you tried to use other new HD ?

Furthermore, have you also checked your RAID configuration, is it good ?
