  • Hi,

     

    Did you want to install Windows 7 on your Windows server 2008R2?

     

    The error message: An unexpected I/O error has occurred. Status: (0Xc00000e9) is a hardware error pertaining to your system’s BIOS.  Basically it is telling you that the computer is not able to reliably communicate with the hard drive.

     

    I suggest to update BIOS to the latest version, and try to rebuilt BCD follow these steps in this thread:

  • Check your BIOS settings for your hard drive because it could be set in in RAID instead of IDE . After changing the BIOS the computer will install Windows finally! (in my case)
