Hi, I have just pruchased an HP ML330 G6 with HP P410 Raid Controller and 12 Gig Ram. I have pressed F8 and created a raid 0+1 with 2 1 Terabyte drives and also a spare 1 terabyte and also changed the befault boot to the Logical drive and the controller to the P410. It starts up fine, boots off the CD for HP SBS 2011, starts installing windows , copys files 100% gets about 25% of expanding, restarts but then fails to boot from the logical drive with error Bootmgr is missing, press ctrl + alt + del to restart. There is no usb key that it is trying to start from.

Hi,

1. Please try c: drive partions for example 50 Gb, and d: drive 950 gb.

2. Sometimes memory problems have this problem. If you easy, try memory change, or decrease.

Boot from the SmartStart CD ROM and let that install your OS of choice automatically.

It is the easiest way to get your server configured and working properly.

In case you don't have the latest version on your CD - please download v8.70b x64 (if you are installing a 64-bit OS) from:

did you mark the RAID as bootable in its own BIOS where you configure the RAID? Did you also change the boot order in the server BIOS?

try installing Ubuntu to see if that works, if it does, maybe Windows does not like some of your hardware or is missing drivers for it
