2003 server 64 to server 2008 r2 upgrade fails at reboot

Getting this error when trying to upgrade an app server from 2003 64 server to 2008 r2 server. Happens after initial reboot and then reverts back to original. Firmware for RAID controller and system BIOS updated as was controller driver. Any ideas? Upgrade has to do in this case.

cant find the system volume.  check your partition setup and the appropriate disk is set to boot in bios. when you have upgraded the bios and firmware it has probably set back to defaults or lost some settings.

I presume the 2008 R2 is x64.

And ensure you have given the correct path where Windows is installed.  Also, during upgrade, have you given it drivers compatible for windows 2008 for your RAID controller?  It's showing something with mounting HDDs.

This is something to do with partition where you are installing the system.

Upgrading the BIOS and RAID controller firmware fixed the issue. Thanks for your replies!
