Need help formatting Cisco UCS B200 for Server 2008

This was an ESXi host that I want to setup as a physical Server 2008 R2 server. Where I get hung up is the Installer give me grief that the partition is GPT and can't do the Windows one. So I attached the Driver DVD for the Cisco UCS B200 M2 and it doesn't like any of those drivers. I can delete the partition and do a new but it always comes back as GPT.

thanks

Hello Gary,

What is the size of the installation disk ?

Did you try deleting and formatting the disks ?

Did you click refresh after loading the drivers ?

Can you please share the exact error message that you receive ?

I did not build the original server but it looks like several partitions were created. I will have to do more investigation on how it was setup. It probably had esxi installed on one of the smaller partitions and the one I was trying to install Windows on was probably the drives used for the datastore.

After I find out how it was built I will get back to here.
