    Hi, thanks for the response.

    I am actually trying to install it into a VM slice, 40GB allocation.

    The physical drive is a seagate SATAII 320GB.


    The minimum drive size for the primary drive on WHS is 80 GB.

    What is the type and size of the drive you are trying to install on?  Is it connected directly to the motherboard or a PCI card?

  • If I remember correctly WHS needs a 60GB partition and this is probably what is causing the error. Try increasing the virtual disk to at least 60GB and try to install on that.
