WHS 2011 Install on a Mediasmart 487

Recommended Posts

I have had WHS 2011 installed on this Mediasmart server before. Changing hard drives made me do a clean install using a thumb drive. I have the video adapter so that I can attach a monitor to the system.

 

The first time I installed was a no problem (relativity) situation. This second time I tried to install I couldn't get the system to boot off a usb thumb drive. No matter what I did it just wouldn't boot from the USB drive. I found a web page that said you could put a jumper on the mother board and then you could access the BIOS. This worked fine and now I can boot off my usb drive.

 

Right at the start of the copy process I get an error and a log file comes up. This is the log file:

I've tried different hard drives and re-downloaded the WHS 2011 ISO file with the same results. Any ideas on what is causing this would be greatly appreciated. I'm wondering if it's time to sell the MediaSmart and build a new one?
