Server Reinstall Not An Option RRS feed

  • Question

  • I created a thread in the Software forum originally - http://social.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/whssoftware/thread/c92a434f-4317-43dc-b3f2-312349deb128

    Ken Warren pointed me to this - http://social.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/whsfaq/thread/7a323a25-01d6-4f89-91d7-01474f0a19b5 to try a reinstall.

    When I boot from my WHS CD I do not have the option for Reinstall, I only have New Installation.

    How do I gain the server reinstallation option?

    Any help is appreciated.

    Edit:  Forgot to mention that yes I can see all 8 drives.

    Edit2:  Nevermind, decided that reinstalling WHS probably isn't the smartest idea anyway due to the trouble I've had with it recently and in the past.  Going to just install Vista over the Sys partition and salvage my data.

  • Just for future information, you'll need to make sure
    - the system drive appears as the first one
    - all the data drives are detected. If not, you'll need to load your appropriate SATA drivers
