I'm thinking that I may have collided with a VirtualBox limitation on Windows Hosts (mine is WinXP SP3) because I have found a number of posts down this line without a resolution.
I'm trying to install Windows 2003 Server on HDD attached to a SCSI controller. I have created a new virtual HDD and added an LSI Logic SCSI adapter as an Additional Adapter. After getting past the issue that a disk attached to SCSI 0 is not found I am able to launch the Windows setup, see the HDD I have created but when Windows setup tries to format the disk I get the following error: "Setup was unable to format the partition. The disk may be damaged. Make sure the drive is switched on and properly connected to your computer. If the disk is a SCSI disk, make sure your SCSI devices are properly terminated."
I've tried adding LSILogic drivers as part of the install process (though setup complains that it already has the drivers) with no success.
Does anybody know how to make this work?
Is anybody able to say definitively that it should or should not work?
Am I missing something obvious?
