Install fails on Asus M2N-E motherboard RRS feed

  • Question

  •   (This failed to post before -- I apologize for any duplicates.)

     

      I can't get WHS installed.  I have an Asus M2N-E motherboard, with several SATA drives connected to the onboard controller.  (I've tried with 1, 2 and 3. connected.)  After collecting all the information and telling me that all the data on the drives(s) will be lost, I click Start and it fails with the following error:

     

    Cleaning the disk failed: The device is not ready.

    (error code 0x80070015.)

     

      I'll attach the setup log in followup comments (sorry for the length, but I'm not sure what might be important here.)  In several places it says that the Status of drives is "NOT READY".  How can I fix this?  These drives worked fine on this machine with the previous OS. (WinXP)  I've monkeyed around with this for >4 hours now and must admit I'm stuck.

     

    Thanks in advance for any help,

      Andy

  • You don't want to use the NVidia 'Mediashield' RAID features or driver with WHS.

    Is your DVD drive also SATA?  What size are the SATA Hard Drives?

    Try installing WHS with only a single hard drive installed.

    Make sure your SATA drive shows up in the BIOS Main page, preferably connected to SATA1.  The Extended IDE Drive and Access Mode options should both be Auto.

    The BIOS Advanced page should have the Serial-ATA Controller Enabled, RAID Disabled, and all SATA 1-6 drives with RAID disabled.

    The BIOS Boot menu should have the DVD drive as the 1st boot device, and the SATA hard drive as the 2nd boot device.  3rd and 4th can currently be disabled.

      (This failed to post before -- I apologize for any duplicates.)

     

      I can't get WHS installed.  I have an Asus M2N-E motherboard, with several SATA drives connected to the onboard controller.  (I've tried with 1, 2 and 3. connected.)  After collecting all the information and telling me that all the data on the drives(s) will be lost, I click Start and it fails with the following error:

     

    Cleaning the disk failed: The device is not ready.

    (error code 0x80070015.)

     

      I'll attach the setup log in followup comments (sorry for the length, but I'm not sure what might be important here.)  In several places it says that the Status of drives is "NOT READY".  How can I fix this?  These drives worked fine on this machine with the previous OS. (WinXP)  I've monkeyed around with this for >4 hours now and must admit I'm stuck.

     

    Thanks in advance for any help,

      Andy

     

    You might check your mobo settings and see if you can set the SATA ports for IDE compatibility/legacy mode (or some similar wording).

  • Hi,

    The error message 0x80070015 can indicate that the DVD has been removed before install has completed. You did leave it in through the reboot up until you see the 'Welcome' message, also, you are providing the SATA drivers required twice, once for the graphical install, and then again by pressing F6 during the text mode portion?

  • The closest I have found is an "Extended IDE Drive" setting for each of the SATA drives.  It's set to "Auto".  Choices are Auto and None.

     

    Thanks,

    Andy

  •   Yes, I've been careful to keep/replace the install DVD in the drive.  (I read about that one in one of the other forum threads.)  I've tried providing no drivers, and providing the SATA RAID drivers on the CD that came with the Mobo, and with freshly-downloaded versions on a USB key.  Asus dosn't show any SATA drivers that don't include "RAID" in the decription, even though I'm not trying to set up RAID on this box.  In any case, all three scenarios yield the same result.

     

      I'm only able to provide drivers once, as far as I can tell.  I never get to any text mode portion of the install.  It fails while still in graphical mode.

     

    Thanks,

      Andy

  • Based on the earlier suggestion, I went to the NVidia site and found some drivers for my chipset, including a SATA-IDE driver.  Unfortunately, when I try to load this as part of the install, I get an error indicating that this driver requires a reboot.  Might there be a way around this error?

     

    Thanks,

      Andy

  • You don't want to use the NVidia 'Mediashield' RAID features or driver with WHS.

    Is your DVD drive also SATA?  What size are the SATA Hard Drives?

    Try installing WHS with only a single hard drive installed.

    Make sure your SATA drive shows up in the BIOS Main page, preferably connected to SATA1.  The Extended IDE Drive and Access Mode options should both be Auto.

    The BIOS Advanced page should have the Serial-ATA Controller Enabled, RAID Disabled, and all SATA 1-6 drives with RAID disabled.

    The BIOS Boot menu should have the DVD drive as the 1st boot device, and the SATA hard drive as the 2nd boot device.  3rd and 4th can currently be disabled.

  •    Sorry for my slow reply.  That seems to have done the trick.  I'm not sure what was different, since I thought I had tried this combination before.  If I had to guess, it might be installing with only 1 drive connected, since I hadn't played with that configuration as much.

      In any case, thanks very much for your help.  I'm very glad to have it installed and running now.

  • No Problem.  Glad that it worked out.

    Usually going with the lowest denominator such as only one drive reduces the possibility of anything going astray.
    Since many current motherboards include on-board RAID, this is something that many do-it-yourself'ers will have to watch out for.
