I am trying to install a Server 2008 OS onto a good performance workstation with 4gb ram. I have tried many different hard drives, different DVD drives and changes the RAM. I have a desktop board Intel DG965WH. I believe that should be OK. This is a test server and as mentioned 4gb RAM. in the proper slots recommended by intel. the installation seems to go very very slow. I have installed this OS many times and it has never been this slow. It was installed before on a different system.

It looks like I got it now. Not sure what fixed it. I updated the BIOS, reconnected a USB hard drive that had a loose USB connection to the computer and changed the DVD media. But it is moving normally now.
