I'm mostly a windows user, so please lay everything in layman's terms XD
I've been trying to install just about every ubuntu server version on my server, but they all fail at 'Installing System: 33%'. The drive I am using is 137.4gb so that shouldn't be a problem. this is also a particularly old system being a HP Proliant DL360 G4, with an IBM HDD (which I know you're not supposed to mix hdd manufacturers, but I'm on a budget here, I also really don't want to spend much on a deprecated server)
I have tried basically everything I can with this server, and have basically exhausted any idea I could think of. I've done basically every ubuntu server version (ubuntu server 12 and up, both in ISO and DD mode) and I've tried installing some other linux server distros with varying results, none of them have succeeded.
I'm pretty sure this is a HDD problem, but I can't do anything to check because I would need an OS to do that, and I don't have any other systems that use the U320 SCSI format of drive. It should also be noted this drive is in RAID 0 because I can't turn raid off (and it's hard-wired in, I can't remove the raid card) and I have no other drives in the system other than that one, I don't really know how raid works, but it might be the culprit.
I'm going to edit this to include the log file when I do CTRL+ALT+F4, but last time I checked the error was something about GRUB
