Issues installing WHS RRS feed

  • Question

  • I purchased a WHS OEM builder pack two years ago, and I am finally getting around to installing it. I am using a single 60 GB IDE HD. The installer stops and tells me that it requires a SATA raid array. I am curious, I thought that this system was supposed to be able to be set up on the most basic machine.

  • I'm pretty sure it's not requesting a RAID array. (Microsoft doesn't consider RAID a consumer technology, and Windows Home Server is a consumer product.) However, the minimum system requirements include at least one drive of 80+ GB, and there's a hard limit of around 70 GB on that. So your 60 GB drive is too small.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
