PGP Universal Server Installation Issue - Error Partitioning

This issue has been solved. See solution.

I am having problems installing PGP Universal Server 3.1.2

The installation is being done on an Intel Xeon 2.4Ghz Server with 8GB of RAM. It has an LSI Raid Adapter and a mirrored pair of 1TB drives. There is currently no operating system loaded on the drives.

Everytime I attempt to install the PGP Universal Server from the .iso file, I receive the following error:

Error Partitioning

Could not allocate requested partitions:

Partitioning failed: Could not allocate partitions as primary partitions. Not enough space left to create partition for /boot.

Press 'OK' to reboot your system.

Can anyone help me out. What am I missing?

This might be unsupported hardware and therefore the installer cannot access the hard disk to set it up for installation.

please check the release notes for the list of supported hardware platforms:

Also note that version 3.2 was just recently released and i would advise using this version if you are doing a new install. Release notes for 3.2:

If you have no other choice than unsupported hardware, you can use the (free) VMWare ESXi hypervisor on this hardware and install Universal Server as a virtual machine on the syste,
