    it could be because its a 2tb drive,you could try partitioning it into two smaller partitions,then the os may install,keep native sata port enabled on older operating systems,when installing anyway

    Thanks for being patient and assisting me so far. I just got off the phone with gigabyte tech support for the second time. They basically blamed WHS/Win2k3 as the culprit. UGH.

    Edit: Forgot to mention, by default, Windows Home Server will create a 20 GB partition and install the OS to it.

    WHS is based on Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2.

    System Requirements
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    •Supported Operating Systems for Windows Home Server

    •Windows 7 (32-bit and 64-bit versions)
    •Windows Vista (32-bit and 64-bit versions)
    •Windows XP with Service Pack 2 and higher

    You need one of these OS versions installed before installing WHS. WHS is not an OS to be run on its own.

    Naa you can download the ISO, burn it and install it as an independent OS. I already tried a sample install on an old laptop and it works fine.

    See this link - Download details: Windows Home Server Power Pack 3 Evaluation

    Just thought I'd swing by and give a heads up to my problem. Turns out it wasn't the mobo. It's actually a combination of the new EARS (advanced green) drives from WD and it's compatibility with WHS/W2K3 in how it is able to format/setup the byte sizes (iirc). I installed the server with a dated EIDE drive as the OS drive and things are a LOT snappier now. I guess I will have to wait until VAIL is released.

    Thanks to those who took the time to reply.

    The supported OS list refers to what OTTHER machines on the network must be running in order for you to set up a home network. In and of itself, WHS is a fully functional OS. It's basically a cut down version of Server 2003 with features home users won't need removed and the price dropped to match (and make it viable for a home user to purchase).

    Perhaps the latest Intel RST drivers will help sort any compatibility issues? You can always quickly re-insert your WD drive and see how they effect transfer rates. After all, if it's a WHS issue then it's more likely a software issue than a hardware one, because as soon as the drive is talking to the SATA port and the SATA port is talking to the OS, things should function. If it doesn't work then keep an eye on WD's website for possible HDD firmware updates. http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Deta...+RST)&lang=eng
