Let me gather more details about this situation.

Are you trying to install this on a virtual drive that has been recently created?

I would probably consider deleting the virtual drive and recreate it and make sure you initialize the boot sector of it. I would also set the affinity to one of the Storage Controllers.

Which installation media (CD/DVD, USB Flash Drive, console redirection) are you using? Have you tried a different media or different Operating System version?

Which firmware version are you running on?
