    I'm installing W2003 Small Business Server. It installed
    fine on my test machine. Now I'm installing it on the new
    machine and it locks up during install. I tried a new hard
    drive SCSI 37GB. Locks up in the same exact place during
    install.

    Current Server Hardware: P4 2.8GB, 1.2GB RAM, 2 SCSI
    controllers with 37GB SCSI drives

    What should I try?

    You may need to boot the Windows 2003 CD-Rom and *F6* very early and very
    important (at setup is inspecting your system) in the setup to prevent drive
    controller detection, and select S to specify additional drivers. Then later
    you'll be prompted to insert the manufacturer supplied Windows 2003 driver
    for your SCSI controller in drive "A"

    If you wait and then S to specify additional drivers, then it may be too
    late as Windows 2003 Setup at this point may have already assigned the
    resources your drive's controller is wanting to use.
