  • Problem Installing Win Server 2008 in Dell PowerEdge

    Hi, i'm having some difficulty installing server 2008 64bit on a poweredge R410server. It goes through the motions using the Dell Systems manamagemtn tools and documentation DVD and i have configured RAID etc as required but then when it re-boots and goes into the windows setup where it asks for the Server 2008 media it reads the media, see's it's a valid media and then comes up with an error message - The file Autorun.dll could not be loaded or is corrupt. Setup cannot continue. Error code is [0xc1]. And then all i can do is power off the server. I have tried a couple of dics and the same happens. If i then just boot the server from the server 2008 disc and attempt the install that way it does then load into the 2008 setup but it then propmpts me to install drivers for the cd/dvd drive - i point it to the PERC drivers or any driver that i downloaded form dell suupport, i have on a USB drive which it see's fine but then comes up and says no other devices found as if it's not seeing the actual hard drives and won't let me do anymore. WOuld really appreciate any help as it's driving me mad. Thanks in advance. And Dell has no answer for me.

    where did you obtain the 2008 Media from?

    It may be a dodgy burn.. ?

      My boss actually gave it to me in iso file. I already burned another copy but same result.

        do you have a spare machine you could try that 2008 disk on ?
        doesn't matterif it's an old desktop - we simply need to find out if the burn is working, or if the same problem exists..

          "If i then just boot the server from the server 2008 disc and attempt the install that way it does then load into the 2008 setup but it then prompts me to install drivers for the cd/dvd drive - i point it to the drivers or any driver that i downloaded for the specific Desktop, i have on a USB drive which it see's fine but then comes up and says no other devices found as if it's not seeing the actual hard drives and won't let me do anymore.

            You will need to find RAID/SATA drivers for the MoBo, or set the BIOS to be in "normal" not RAID mode

              Did your manager checked the MD5 hash from his download?
              Microsoft provides this when you download an ISO file.

                @ Ossian - I already downloaded and tried to install all the drivers provide by dell for PEr410 but it always say no device driver located something like that.

                @Dumber - I actually dont know sir

                Update: 05152010
                I downloaded a trial form microsoft just to isolate which is really casuing the problem.Because I dont want my boss to Think im the One who is having a problem. I installed the trial and it worked without any problem I am so happy.. So I told my boss I think its the media that he gave that has a problem.Thanks Guys for the constant support..
