I recommend that you connect the hard drive to the sata connector on the motherboard instead. Finish the installation. Then check Device Manager to see which drivers are missing, install. Then when it's all done, move the hard drive back to the drive cage.

Hi.

Thanks for you answer.

I tried to connect di HDD to the sata connector of the motherboard but the results is the same.

I'm unable to start the installation

Weird.

 

An other option is to put the hard drive in a PC and start the installation there. Then when it asks to reboot, you power down, put the drive into the server and power up. The installation should continue.

If you're using the stock 250GB Drive from HP WHS-2011 will already see the HDD and you don't need any additional SATA drivers.  Just check the box (see my RED check mark) in the lower left that you understand that the installer will wipe out everything on your HDD and click Install in the lower bottom right.

OK, silly question, which SATA driver did you install?

I downladed them from amd site.

I tried to use the Windows 7 64b sata drivers and the ones for Windows Vista 64b too.

The installation starts, wipe the disk and then crash.

Just a further info.

When I added sata driver the setup crashs with the error -1073741819.

I don't know why.

AFAIK, the Win7 drivers should work. Have you check the HP site to see if they have any SATA drivers listed?

Server 2008 or 2008r2 drivers should work fine.  That's what I used.
