Regional and Keyboard Settings fields blank RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to a reinstall of WHS from a DVD after a crash. In the initial "Collecting information" phase of setup, on the "Select your Regional and Keyboard Settings" dialog, the fields are blank for both the "Time and currency format" and "Keyboard or input method" fields, and the drop-down lists have no entries - clicking the drop-down arrow turns switches blue highlighting on and off in the empty answer box.

    Clicking the Next button shuts down setup and reboots the system. I've verified the CRC checksum for the downloaded Server Installation DVD ISO.

  • Try reinstalling while disconnected from your network.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)

  • Didn't work.

    From what I googled you have to reformat the drive.

    I did that and the install worked.  Of course I also lost 4 terabytes of data.

    So much for the reliability of WHS.
