You try to install the Brazilian or Russian version of Microsoft Windows Server 2003 on a computer that uses a Serial Advanced Technology Attachment (SATA) RAID controller. However, the installation operation stops unexpectedly in this situation. Additionally, you receive an error message on a blue screen after you finish installing the required RAID driver from a floppy disk.
An Adaptec 2410SA controller is an example of the SATA RAID controller in question.
This problem does not occur in the English-language versions of Windows Server 2003.
To install a RAID driver from a floppy disk during the Windows Server 2003 installation operation, press F6.
This problem occurs because there is a problem in the Txtsetup.sif file in the Brazilian and Russian versions of Windows Server 2003
