Question about Dell PowerEdge 2500 Server
I am trying to load a Windows Small Business Sever 2003 Standard on my Dell Poweredge 2500 Server. I have 3 different kinds of Hard Disk Drive installed (2 IBM 73Gb, 3 Compaq 36Gb, and 1 Seagate 73Gb). I bought the server with the 2 IBM hard drive. Every time I try to install the operating system, it will load up to about 72% at the most, then nothing happens after. This is just with the IBM hard drives plugged in. With the IBM, Seagate, and the Compaq all together, the percentage stays at 46 and will never move. Is it the hard drives? Or there could be problems that will prevent the operating system from loading.
Try removing all of the hdds or just leave one that you think it works. See what happens.
