Yes. Sorry I was not more informative. I did F6 at the right time.
Tonight I had the time to take a known working IDE HDD and an IDE CDRom drive from another system and got the same error.
Install goes properly right up to the point where after the EULA it wants to start writing to the HDD.
So now it doesn't make any sense that it would be a problem with the SATA raid array either.
I also ran memtest and so far 2 passes over almost 2 hours and no error with the RAM.
This is all leading to the Motherboard or the Windows install CD. I am not happy.
Gosh this sux ..............
