I wasted several hours to figure out that when you get this error, you need to remove the driver CD and put back the windows install DVD. Then re-select your partition. This error message is completely stupid and useless.

Thank you so much, LMOC.

It's working fine also for WINDOWS 2008 SERVER R2.
Tried for hours, found nothing useful by google until I read your post!

Just onl put back my Server-DVD in the drive and hit REFRESH! A few seconds later I could go in with the installation process.

THIS IS SOOOOO LAME !!!

Many thanks for the great suggestion ...

I clicked on REFRESH and "voila" ... Windows 7 can be installed ... i searched for ages for the correct SATA driver ...

Can this be a "good-bye-present" from Billy Gates ???????????? *evil grin*
