  1. Just bought 2 new Intel S5000VSA server boards, After building both Pcs using the Intel disc that came with board and even the win 2003 setup disc directly I cant seem to install windows server 2003 without receiving a BSOD during setup. All Hardware is compliant with the board. Please Help

    Strip the system down. One memory stick, no USB devices, on-board video and sound, no sound card and try the OS install again. Reset the bios to failsafe defaults

    I've been in contact with Intel support servces and together we discoverd a common known issue with this s5000vsa-satar server board. The issue is that a installation disc of windows server 2003 with no service packs will alway cause a BSOD, so I need to do some slipstreaming of my Server 2003 installtion disc with SP1 or SP2.
