Badge +2
Hi!

I can't install Nutanix onto my Dell R710 (which was working in same configuration as what it's in now). It keeps saying "Installation did not succeed." at the end of the installation proecss. Specs as per below;

RAID card: PERC 6/i
SSD: Crucial_CT1024M5 (1TB) (currently being presented as a single disk RAID0 volume)
HDDs: 7 x 300GB SAS in RAID0
96GB RAM
2x Quad core Xeons with virtualisation enabled

I've tried the below releases;
ce-2017.07.20-stable
ce-2017.05.22-stable < was previously installed and was working in the above config

Please let me know what log files you'd like to see 🙂

PS the system is reporting that the SSD is showing as a rotational disk as per this articles steps;

I've tried flipping it to a 0 but no luck

What did you change. I have the same issue

In this particular instance I replaced the USB stick from a 16GB to a 32GB.
