Installation of WHS RRS feed

  • Question

  • Trying to install it on a Poweredge 1800 Dual 2.8 Xeon,
    4gig ECC
    2x750gb Sata
    1x73gb Ultra320.

    Trying to install WHS as it would be more Beneficial to use at home for the family, versus server 2003.

    Pulled all the Memory minus one stick, unplug all hard drives minus one to install the software,
    I cannot boot the system from the OEM disc, does not recognize it.

    Any ideas?
    I know it recognizes Server 2k3.

  • This is probably way too simple, but are you sure the optical drive is properly in the boot sequence?  I've had similiar problems in the past when, for example BIOS is updated and the Boot Priority gets changed without your knowing it.

  • IIRC, SBS2k3 comes as a CD-ROM.
    WHS ships on DVD.  It's a DVD-ROM drive, right?
