Installing windows 7 64 bit on an HP DL360 G7
I'm trying to load windows 7 on this HP DL360 g7 server however, when I get to the disk part windows 7 will not load. It sees the disk but it just will not load. Any ideas?

not sure why it wouldn't load but maybe I can help come up with a solution. What are you trying to do with this? Any reason you can't install ESXi first then create a VM with windows 7 on it or is this to be a desktop?

Will not load is not a very specific error message or the description of the issue. Can you take a picture of what you're seeing/getting?
OK the error I'm getting is the following:
Setup was unable to create a new system partition or locate an existing system partition. This is when I try to install windows 7. There's nothing on these drives. It's just a Raid 1 that's all. I wonder if I pull one of the drives of the mirror, will it install and then I'll put back the drive.
