OK, here's the story. Had a machine running Win XP, with 3 hard drives in it.
Unplugged 1 hard drive, removed 1 hard drive and installed 1 new 1 TB Seagate Barracuda hard drive
Put Win Server 2008 R2 Standard 64 bit DVD in the DVD drive, I start up the machine, it boots from the DVD, and Windows setup starts. I go through the install wizard to the point where it asks 'Where do you want to install Windows?' And it displays a list of drives - the problem is, it only shows 1 drive, with drive letter O, and shows that this drive has 3.9GB. I can only conclude that somehow it's picking up the DVD drive as drive O, and showing this. Because the machine currently only has 2 hard drives in it - one of which is completely unplugged, and the other of which is a new 1 TB drive.
Of course, I want to install W2K8 Server on the new 1 TB hard drive, but Windows setup doesn't seem to be detecting the new drive. Can anyone help me?
thank you very much.
