hi, I am having some issues installing Windows server 2012 on to my HP ML350 Gen 6.

it has 24GB of Ram, 2 x Xeon processors and a Raid controller of which is a P410i1.

it can see the partition, drive etc. but for some reason when copying files i get the attached error.

any thoughts? This is a straight forward install and as far as I can see I shouldn't be having any problems..

Thanks

Maybe just a read error on the setup files. If on DVD, try installing from USB and vice versa.

Good Afternoon,

Is the drive brand new or are you trying to do a direct upgrade?

It may be that the either the source of the installation files may be corrupt try re-downloading the iso and attempt to install it using a USB.

If that doesn't work try to burn it again using a cd \ try installing it on a VM to see if it does in fact install.

Most probably the Source is corupted, please re-download the source and install. Also check the health of primary partition or disk on which the OS is getting installed.
