I've tried this several times and I'm getting a bit desperate. This has worked for me before, so I'm perplexed as to why it's failing now.
I have an HP EX470 and I am trying to install the WHS software onto a fresh disk. I'm running the install on a Mac using VMWare Fusion (this has worked for me before). I get as far as the "Server recovery complete" dialog, but the lights continue to flash red/purple. If I click "Finish," the system continues in this state and the client can't find the server to install the client-side software. The drive lights never come on at all.
I'm surely missing something.
Thanks for your help!
I have had the same result with the v1.1 disk that came with the system and the v3.0 disk I'm trying now, I've tried both Vista and W7 (can't locate my XP install disk and don't have a VM for that anymore).
