  • Hi,

    It seems that the issue is related to the IBM System x3650 M3. I think you’d better involve the IBM vender engineer to verify whether the hare drive is supported to install the Windows Server 2008 R2.

    Have you received any errors or warnings during the installation processing of Windows Server 2008 R2? I believe it could be a checkpoint.

    At the same time, you could ask your inquiry in the IBM forum:
