Windows Home server Post Installation troubleshoot RRS feed

  • Question

  • i am trying to install windows home server 120D trial.. but i am having a problem during post installation..

    like after installtion of windows .. when server reboots for first time .. further WHS installtion starts where additional updates are installed by it..

    but on my server.. after installation of two updates and reboot.. the post installtion process never completes. it always stuck on near about 20-25 %(based on progress bar reading).

    do any one can tell me what can be the reason and how to solve it..

  • Please try reinstalling without internet connection (disconnect nework cable). Then after you have completed setup reconnect and install updates.

  • k it helped, thanks... but now got one more big problem!!

    after updates completes and server reboots another server configration windows open.. and when i click next button..
    it gives an error..

    like "configration failed.. either click back to start again or click next to close this window.. you can configure your server later on OR reboot your system to try configure again. if you are getting this error again n again contact Microsoft Support"

    why is it giving such an error.. although the  installation media (DVD) is scratch proof.. and i have verified the DVD.. there is nothing like read or CRC error..
    even than y is it keep giving me such error...
