I can get the windows install to start. It goes through the putting in the serial key then at the part to partition the drive there is no drive showing to do the install.
we know.... we get it. no drive shows up when installing from DVD.
I can't even recall the last time I installed an OS from a DVD/CD. Its probably been a decade since ive even has an optical drive installed. That said, perhaps there is some odd windows preload driver issue like back in the old RAID array days.
This is why we suggested try from windows media creation tool via USB.
