    Has anyone else gotten this combo to work?

    Whenever I try to install WSE2012 through UEFI/BIOS it fails. The computer reboots before I even get into the setup GUI. So far, I have only been able to boot into DOS.

    I've removed all PCIE cards, unplugged hard drives, and updated the BIOS to the latest version.

    I verified the chksum of the WSE2012 against Technet so i know my download is good.

    I burned the ISO to DVD & Flash drive.

    Any ideas?

    Found the issue:

    After trying a different PSU the computer would boot successfully.

    I re-seated all the MB power connectors & the machine is booting fine now with the original PSU.
