I am trying to install windows 7 on a HP Server machine. Originally the machine had Windows Server 2003 but we have purchased new servers and I want to use this machine to facilitate scanning for a dms and the scan program does not work properly on the Server.
Anyway after breaking the original Raid 1 I began installing 7 using an external DVD Ram Drive. Everything goes well until the machine restarts and it attempts to set up windows services. Then I get this error. I ahve tried it more than once and the same thing happens. I am considering that I may need to do a slipstream DVD including th emachine drivers but I am not sure where in the installation 7 install drivers.
The error message is below
"The Computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an unexpected error. Windows installation cannot proceed. To install Windows, click "OK" to restart the computer, and then restart the installation."
