BinaryLimited: ok something new....
the only driver that installed was the usb 3.0.... once the driver installs it moves to the next screen and get an awesome "installation failed, please reboot " message


There are 4 revisions of that motherboard, make sure you have the right one.

I might suggest you go to your BIOS and set the SATA drivers to 'compatible' mode or similar. There may also be a setting to disable the USB3 or have them detected as USB2. This would be a way to make sure the native drivers work. Once the OS is installed, you can dick with the drivers and performance tune it, getting from compatible SATA to SATA3 is well documented and easy to do (generally speaking).

OK to recap everything...

 

  • Removed all Ram, inserted only 1 stick of ram.
  • Tried installing OS on 2 different HDD's
  • No raid setup
  • mounted the iso to 2 different USB's ( 8GB )
  • Tried installation on a different PC with 2 different HDD's.
  • Formatted both hdd's and removed all partitions.
  • Installed required drivers ( not a problem anymore )
  • Removed all addon hardware ( GPU etc )

Still get this error :
win7 Setup exited with 31
UIBackEnd : : RunWindowsSetup : Exited (0x80004005)
UIBackEnd : : Launch : Exited (0X80004005)
Failed to Launch windows setup



Anyone got more ideas?

dont know then sorry. On mine I installed to a 240GB SSD and used Windows 7 64bit motherboard drivers and all went well.

edit to say I used a USB external cd drive to install from.
also forgot to say, I only had the 1 hdd installed that I wanted os on then once installed added my data hard drives,

yeah, i also used windows 7 drivers. Atleast i know im on the right path with that.

Thing i cant understand is that after all the reading on different forums...people mention that Home Server is based on Server 2008.
How is it im able to install Server 2008 and Server 2012 on the same machine but not Home Server 2011?

An install method that works well for headless machines, is to begin the install on a different machine, then, at the first reboot, pull the drive and bung it in the target machine. Could be worth a crack.

And the HDD is supposed to be bigger than 160GB, but there are a few ways around that. I'm using a 60GB SSD in mine no problem at all.

From memory, and based on where you're saying you're up to in the install process, it's definitely the disk controller drivers that it's after.

From the gigabyte site, the drivers are one of these:

 

  • AMD SATA RAID Driver (Preinstall driver, press F6 during Windows* setup to read from floppy) 3.3.1540.33 0.38 MB 2012/10/25 Asia China America EuropeEurope(Russia) : FTP / Http 
  • AMD SATA AHCI Driver (Preinstall driver, press F6 during Windows* setup to read from floppy) 1.2.001.0331 0.28 MB 2012/10/25 Asia China America EuropeEurope(Russia) : FTP / Http 
  • Marvell RAID Driver 1.1.0.6 0.43 MB 2011/08/16 Asia China America EuropeEurope(Russia) : FTP / Http 
  • Marvell AHCI Driver 1.1.0.6 0.43 MB 2011/08/16 Asia China America EuropeEurope(Russia) : FTP / Http 

It depends on the BIOS settings and what ports they're plugged in on.Cause it's installing from WinPE, you can put the drivers on a USB stick.Are you in Auckland? If so, I could take a look...

have you tried updating the BIOS to the latest version, then taking the "load optimal defaults" (or equivalent) to reset the bios back to 'factory'?

Thanks for the help everyone.
