          Let me gather more details about this situation.

           

          Are you trying to install this on a virtual drive that has been recently created?

           

          I would probably consider deleting the virtual drive and recreate it and make sure you initialize the boot sector of it. I would also set the affinity to one of the Storage Controllers.

           

          Which installation media (CD/DVD, USB Flash Drive, console redirection) are you using? Have you tried a different media or different Operating System version?

           

          Which firmware version are you running on?
