Shell32.dll file is very important windows system files.It control all users grapgical settings, icons, anything related to graphic user interface of the Operating system.If shell32.dll cannot be copied during installation,the system never gets to GUI mode.Try using a New CD/DVD.it will solve your problem.

When i install MS windows server 2003 in IBM x3400 server it gives me message that setup could not find any hard desk installed in your computer.

The hard drive may only needs the data cables re-connecting or the hard drive may be faulty.
First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If this does not work then reboot and go to theBIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn'tdetect the hard drive then it could be faulty. Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer, Windows installed and the computer's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer again.

I WANT TO INSTALL 2003 SERVER ON IBM X236 BUT IT IS SHOWING NO DRIVE PRESENT

Use the IBM configuration disk and it should be able to prepare the server for what ever OS you need to install. If you don't have it then, try redoing RAID and reformat the hard drives and try again..You can probably hit F6 during the initial portion of the install and supply the necessary SATA drivers on a floppy and get it to install. You will probably need a USB floppy though unless your server has a floppy drive.

Insert your Microsoft Server 2003 Installation disc into the CD/DVD-ROM drive and boot the server from the installation disc. Microsoft Setup will load the files it needs to perform an installation. Press "Enter" to setup and install Windows.

  • 2 Press "F8" to accept the Microsoft License Agreement.
  • 3 Create a new partition to install the operating system onto by selecting the "Unpartitioned Space" and pressing "C." If there is no unpartitioned space, highlight and delete all of the other partitions on the hard drive by pressing "D." Set the partition size to the "Maximum Size" and press "Enter."
  • 4 Format your new partition with the "NTFS" or the "NTFS (Quick)" option. Windows setup will format your hard drive and load the installation files. Your IBM Netfinity will restart and installation will continue.
  • 5 Select language and regional setup information, then press "Next." Enter your name and company name, then press "Next." Enter your Windows 2003 Server Product Key and press "Next."
  • 6 Select the licensing mode you would prefer to use and press "Next." Create an administrative account and password and press "Next." Enter the current time and time zone and press "Next."
  • 7 Setup your Network information by naming the server and defining how it will connect through the net. Press "Next" to navigate through the network setup screens. Windows Setup will finish the installation process and provide you with a log-in screen to use your computer.
  • If you delete old partitions from the hard drive to install Windows Server 2003, you will lose all information on those partitions.

    How to install windows server2003in ibm server x3400

    The install is fairly easy. Before you begin make sure if you have SCSI adaptors installed have the drivers for them on hand. If you do not have these drivers you should download them to a 1.4MB floppy disk. When you are ready, put the Windows Server disk in the cd/dvd and reboot the IBM. Follow the instructions on screen and you shoud be fine. From start to finish it should take you about 1 1/2 hours to complete everything.

    Good Luck
