  • Hi Michael,
    did you at any time get the initial Windows Home Server configuration screen to determine the server name and the console password?
    If not, the installation never has been completed (although you should have gotten an error message in this case).
    During the entire installation process the WHS Setup DVD must remain in the drive.
    Also you normally should not logon to the server, but use the connector software for the initial configuration (only if no network drivers have been installed, a local logon may be necessary).

    I would recommend to retry the installation from the scratch.
    Best greetings from Germany

    I had the same problem recently when I was installing WHS in a VM.  It turns out that there is a registry key that keeps track of how many reboots are left (probably used during the WHS portion of the install).  If you keep rebooting the server, eventually it will stop (I think there were 3 extra reboots when I installed it).
