WHS installation problem RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a 5 years old Dell Dimension 4550. It has all the requirements for WHS. I bought 2 500 GB drive and replaced the existing one. So I have 1 TB in the PC.

    I started to install the WHS and when get to the page to name your server: I can type in anything and it comes back with an error message:

    A computer with this name already exist on your home network. Please provide a unique Home Server name to continue.

    So I stuck right here.

    Any idea/help?

  • Disconnect your LAN card cable until you pass this point.  Then once it accepts the name, plug it back in.
