issue installing Windows 2008 R2


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,


Hopefully I have missed something simple.


I am looking to install Windows 2008 R2 on to my Gen 8.


I have the bootable DVD in the Cd/DVD drive and I am able to start the installation of 2008 R2.


However when I come to install on the disc in position 5 (identified as logical disc one), I get the following error message:


"Windows can't be installed to this disk Setup does not support configuration of or installation to disks connected through a USB or IEEE 1394 Port"


This suggests that Windows cannot see the disc.


What step have I left out that will allow me to continue the installation?


If I try to use the IP, the system does not recognize my DVD as valid media even though it is the ISO downloaded from Microsoft.


Thank you for any help,
