  • Hi
    Im installing WHS on a KPC45 Shuttle as per instructions on http://www.homeserverhacks.com/2008/04/build-green-400-windows-home-server_2871.html 
    Everytime i come to the end of the installation i get an error indicating "Configuring to fix MFT $Upcase table on next reboot" this is then followed by Server installation has failed and the code is always 0x80004005. Log details below.

    The intel chipset is 945GC. This is a new machine with a WD1001FALS HD. Any help or advise appreciated.

  • Hi,
    did you leave the WHS installation DVD all the time in the drive?
    Maybe it will also make sense, to reinitialize the disk before going on to get rid of any blocking stuff from the past.
    Since the need to fix the Master File Table according to the your message points to a failure there, also faulty memory, a faulty disk or a bad cable could be a reason.

  • Installing WHS from a flash drive is not supported and could be a potential reason, why the installation fails (since the behaviour how USB drives are mounted are very hardware and driver dependent). I have never tested this scenario.
    So I would go and burn the ISO to a DVD and if necessary borrow an internal DVD drive from one of the client PCs and try the installation again.

    (And: Also and especially brand new hardware can be faulty.)

  • Hi Olaf

    I am testing the new MSDN WHS ISO which i have extracted and put the files onto a USB flash drive <formated via diskpart>.

    This goes through the installation fine and when reboot happens i ensure the bios boot prioirty is set back to HD rather than the USB flashdrive set initially. I left the USB drive throughout the installation but this same error happens everytime.

    The hard drive and memory are brand new.

    Is there anything else i can check?

    thanks
