I'm trying to install Windows 2012 R2 on an HP Proliant  ML310e Gen8 and no matter what kind of DVD I try, it's failing with a "corrupted installation files" messages. Am I doing something wrong here? I did not try an USB stick yet.
I also tried to get out the RAM sticks(per some research online). No luck, although when I removed one of the sticks(3 slot) it start beeping like crazy so basically, I could not test if the 3rd slot could cause this.

Thank you for your help!photo.JPG

Are you installing with the Latest HP Intelligent Provisioning?
Or directly from the Windows DVD?

You can take a look here for further information.

You should still try to test the memory. Either remove 2 memory modules, leaving one in the first slot (look in the manuals, there should be only one available memory configuration if you use only one slot). Test install, if fails again, replace memory module. Or if you can't find the correct configuration for one memory module, use a boot CD instead from memtest.org

I got a little bit of progress by using the HP IP as David Paris suggested but now I get an error saying "Windows could not apply unattended settings during pass [offlineServicing].

Thanks

Are you using the latest HP IP?

You will need at least HP IP 1.60.
And after the OS installation install the Update (KB2919355) manually.

I also advise you to update all the firmware for the latest version.

Let us know.

It was the server firmware that needed to be updated. Thanks everyone for the help!
