WHS v1 re-instalation problems... RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi, had the system disk die on my Tranquil T2 system, sent it back to have it replaced and they installed a standard OEM operating system for me to configure. Got the system back and the initialization process seems to have got part way through and failed... I have a server which is running, renamed and accessible via Remote Desktop Connection... However the back-up service is not running - my guess is that was due to d: not being configured after the new disk was installed... So now I have two questions:-

    1. Is it possible to convince the server to do the initialization process again to see if it gets all the way through?

    2. if not can I run the server re-install from WHS while running? I have a USB powered DVD drive that works while the system is running but did not appear to want to boot from the BIOS prompt?

    Thanks in advance, Peter

    Regards, Peter

  • I'll take that as a "no" way to re-do the initialisation again - reinstalling from release CD... Peter
