Hi, I have a IBM server x3100M4 Core i3-2100 3.1Ghz 2Gb with a SATA 1TB Simple-swap 3Gb/s Hard Drive.
I used to have vmware vsphere esxi and it worked out just fine with windows server and ubuntu server. But then i decided not to virtualize, so I tried to replace it with a install of Windows Server 2008 onto the machine.
On the windows installation I tried to format the HD and install the OS but I got this error: "windows cannot be installed on this disk. The selected disk is of the GPT partition style."
There's some information here:
So I tried GParted gparted-live-0.16.1-1-i486.iso booting from USB. And now it seems my HD drive is dead, GParted loads but after a while then I get this:
devd: timeout: killing '/sbin/modprobe -b scsi:t-0x00'
It keeps trying for 5 minutes like in a loop then just a black screen.
Does anyone know how to fix it?
