Re-Installing WHS now

Well I've backed up my databases and other shared folders onto another hard drive and turned the server off. 

This is a good time to get your vacuum cleaner out and give the box a good going over.  Especially the inside cooling fans and heat sinks.

This box seems to be more dusty than I would have expected.  And it is quite hot to touch.  I might have to rethink the server location.

Ok, Choosing a New Installation. I can now confirm that the installation WILL format all attached hard drives!  This is important to note as had I not disconnected the backup hard drive it would have been up for formatting.

Estimated time for installation: 50 minutes.
