Attempting to install Vista RC1 on Dell PowerEdge 600SC fails...?

  1. I am attempting to install Vista RC1 (build 5600 I believe it is, that was
    shipped to me) on Dell PowerEdge 600SC and it fails every time, beta 2
    installed with no probelm. I orginally thought it was do to lack of drive
    space, as I was attempting to instal it to a 15k 18 gigabyte SCSI320/160
    drive, but I hooked up my other 36 gigabyte drive and have the same problem,
    still. I then added a 2nd 36 gigabyte drvie on the Adaptech's 2nd channel and
    Vista does not even seem to see it, altough beta 2 install and ran with no
    prolem seeing all my drives all along the way. Does anyone have any ideas..?
    Tank you?

  2. I recently purchased a 30g EIDE drive, removed the ADAPTEC ULTRA SCSI-160
    card and drive(s) from the Dell PowerEdge server, but am still unable to
    install VISTA Ultimate Build 5600. The installation continues to explain
    that cannot location a drive. With the SCSI-160 at least the system was able
    to locate the file subsystems, etc.. can anyone direct me to RC2 and maybe
    that will install on the POWEREDGE 600SC. I have a Dell PowerEdge 1750 as
    well, but really don't want to spend anymore time troubleshooting something
    that I cannot get to work. Beta 2 of Vista Ultimate install flawlessly on the
    Dell PowerEdge 600SC.
