Question : Dell PE2950 SMTD OS Install Hangs at Windows Setup

I am attempting to install Windows Server 2003 R2 SP2 (from original Microsoft media) using Dell's SMTD DVD onto a Dell PowerEdge 2950 III. So far, I have used SMTD version 5.2, 5.4, and 6.3.0.

Upon each installation attempt: the Dell's SMTD collects the necessary info and preps the drive; SMTD then asks for the Windows server media; then installs the server installer and reboots.

After the reboot, the Windows server installer locks up at the Windows Setup screen.

Has anybody seen/resolved this problem?

Thanks in advance

In this code:

if False then
    'some statements
end if

>>>> How does the  compiler check this?

if (.....) then

the (......) part checks to see what is the result of the condition and result can be TRUE or FALSE.

some statement will never execute. The IF block checks the (............) part. In this case you have defined yourself what will be the result of condition evaluation.

In the sample code no code within IF-Then block will execute because condition will always treat as False condition.

In this case:

if False then
    'some  statements
   'some other part
end if

some other part will always execute. Due to the nature of the if-then block, when condition results false else part executes.
