WHS OEM - Freezes on creating primary volume RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    Windows Home Server stopes after it installs everything and is doing the final installation. It gives an error code of 0x80004005 and I've tried almost everything possible installting raid drivers on both WHS and the server 2003 part of the install and using acronis disk director to wipe the hdd with 3 overpasses. It always as the same error " Creating volume failed. Error 0x80004005." Then it gives a different error messeges every time, "Creating volume failed because of an error in an external component." I have included the second half of the log file below. Any help will be much appreciated!!!

  • No immediate need for another log file. Smile

    The reason I say it looks like you are installing Beta 2 is because there are several lines like this in your log:

    [12/29/2007 10:25:35 AM  a10] Current product version 6.0.1301.0

    That version indicates Beta 2.

    It's possible that you have a defective DVD, I suppose, though that's not really very likely, or that you have some other hardware issue. Something that would be worth a try is installing in a virtual machine on a different PC. While it's not a supported scenario, the "hardware" in Microsoft Virtual PC is extremely vanilla, and all drivers are available on your installation media. You would not want to activate your test installation (presuming you get that far), but it will let you know if your installation media is defective, and you'll be able to check the actual installed versions of components.

  • You appear to be trying to install Windows Home Server Beta 2, which has long since expired. I haven't tried recently, but I wouldn't expect it to install successfully at this point.

    Where did you obtain your installation media? If you downloaded them from somewhere recently, you have a hacked version of the software. In that case your best bet is to either purchase Windows Home Server from a supplier like NewEgg if you're sure you want to use it, or obtain evaluation media from Microsoft for the cost of media and shipping.

  • I obtained my media legitamitally at NCIX.com, it is a genuine copy, i could have attached the wrong log file though. But the media I obtained did say windows home server OEM. I will attach another log file.
