Windows Server 2008 R2 Foundation on HP ML 110 G6 – SBSBIOSLock

NT Konferenca 2010 is almost here…

While preparing my demos for my sessions I needed to install Windows server 2008 R2 Foundation on an HP ML 110 G6 which was given to me for demos…
After unpacking and starting the server I inserted DVD with installation inside… I get this nice screen telling me Validantih HP Platform Please Wait … 🙂

After a minute I got this error – a popup windows came up with folowing message:


could not find the media

If you want to continue your installation you need to get to HP BIOS and change the value on SATA emulation from RAID to AHCI. It worked for me… Well leave me alone I need to finish my installation. 🙂

    Attach an external USB DVD-ROM and install through that.

    I have done it and it works successfully !
