    Hi All
    Hope somebody can help me out. I just purchased Windows home server 2011 and am trying to install it in an old dell xps 220. duel core processor with 4 gigs of ram.

    Everthing seemed to be going fine until I believe the last part.
    The Desktop appears and another screen pops up with "Please wait while the installation continues"
    after that i get an error [save logs or shut down] what i do is hit the ctrl-alt-del and the Task Manager comes up.
    Then i End Task and my desk top comes up. Every think works OK. ..but when i click on the icon dashboard ...in the server it says [ you have not finished setting up whs 2011 .You cannot open dashboard until you complete the server setup] Need Help ...........installing from a cd disk.

    I tried installing the connecter software on my laptop with the same error resuling. Google reveals no answers to this problem
