Hi guys. I'm hoping someone might have an answer to this issue I'm having.
I'm trying to install Windows Server 2012 R2 on our RDS Server, But on every DVD boot, just after the "Loading Files" screen, the following error flickers on the screen and the server restarts:
Firstly, please let us know if you perform upgrading or a clean installation of Windows Server 2012 R2.
Meanwhile, please apply this Hotfix in your Windows Server 2012 and see how it works.
"0x000000C4" Stop error after you restart a Windows 7-based, Windows 8-based, Windows Server 2008 R2-based or Windows Server 2012-based computer that has the Driver Verifier tool enabled
System Requirements and Installation Information for Windows Server 2012 R2
Hope this helps.
Thanks for helping make community forums a great place.
Hi, I have tried both clean install and upgrade, and both have produced the same error. With the hotfix, should I apply it to Windows Server 2012 and then try upgrading again? Thanks for the specification list, I've just had a quick look through it and everything appears to be met. I also looked at the Compatability Report that the setup made on 2012 and that is showing no issues either, so I'm a little stumped on this one! I'll give that hotfix a go later on and post back my results. Thanks! Joe.
Hi again! I tried that hotfix lastnight but the setup keeps failing with the same error. When I first tried installing it the compatability report said something about the SCSI driver needs updating, but i couldn't find a newer one and as i don't use SCSI on this server I turned it off in the BIOS. Since then the compatability report hasn't mentioned it but I'm starting to think that could be why this error is occuring. I can't see any other reason. If this is the case, how can I get around it?
