Cannot install Vail refresh - Gets to 99% and exits on an error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all

    I have a Fujitsu-Siemens tx125 with 2 gb ram, one IDE DVD writer as slave to a Samsung 400gb IDE drive. The original failure was I failed to notice the NIC was a 100M one, changed that, for a gigabit one with drivers for server 2008 64 and the network error in the log file has now gone.

     I fail on all installs with an error once the system gets to 99%. No errors are seen once the log file states "install in progress".

    I have removed all cards for the raid system and Vail sees the drives as individual ones OK, I've even tried with just the IDE drive in place but this happens every time.

    Does anyone have any experience of this type of problem?

    I've looked through the forums and searched but nothing came back. So any help would be appreciated.

    On the offered restart for another try, without a complete power-down restart, I went in to the BIOS, and found there were no IDE drives seen, seems the install has removed the drives from the computer somehow?

    Now I'm totally confused !!

  • You may need to download and inject (during installation) drivers for your server; Vail doesn't have drivers for every possible hardware combination "in box".

    You'll want drivers for Windows Server 2008 R2.

  • I'm getting the same kind of error. Did you ever get Vail to install correctly?

    here is what the setuperr.log contains;

    2010-11-06 20:39:52, Error      [0x0606cc] IBS    WIMApplyImage failed; hr = 0x80070017[gle=0x00000017]
    2010-11-06 20:52:58, Error      [0x0600a1] IBS    DeployImage:Image application failed; hr = 0x80070017[gle=0x00000017]
    2010-11-06 20:52:58, Error      [0x060082] IBS    Callback_ImageTransfer:Failed to lay down the image; hr = 0x80070017[gle=0x00000017]

     

    update: I ended up having a bad iso image. I d/l it twice and both dvd burns resulted in the error installing VAIL. A third download and image burn resulted in finally getting VAIL to install properly.

  • Hi Ken,

    I & Vail can "see" the drives during the install, so in that respect, no drivers are required.

    The setup log shows Setup enumerates the drives correctly so that's not the one required.

    I cannot load any other driver during install as there is no option for that.

    Does the extract below help?

    As you appear to be doing an unattended install. Have you tried manually installing the system?

    I have never used the unattended install, so do not know much about it, but may be worth doing a full manual install. Also, although a bit of a cliche, you did check the checksums on the downloaded ISO's?

  • Hi Dave,

    Thanks for the reply, I normally boot straight off the dvd, as burnt straight from the download. I verify the burn and also used a second download as well, same result.

    I presume its back to the old days of a boot floppy and then run the install?

    Plus  do you have any thoughts on why the drive is missing from the bios on  a warm restart? Should I raise this as a bug?

    Actually, you have cone so, every time you've installed Vail. All Vail
    installations build and use an unattend.xml file. Check the setup.log file
    in C:\Windows\Panther

    Thanks for that Paul, had not thought of it from that view point. I really meant I have not tried to do an automated install but have simply booted from downloaded ISO and folowed the install wizard.

    No idea Mike, I do not know of anyway the install would have interferred with the bios. Have you tried a new IDE cable?. Or at a minimum tried reseating all connecters. Another option may be to run diagnostics on the drive.

    The way you are installing by directly booting directly off the DVD is no different from the way I run the installation and I suspect most others.
