SSR 2013 hangs up on "removing backup files"
I've installed SSR 2013 on other machines (virtual and physical) with no issue.
I just tried installing it to a VMware VM running Server 2008 R2 Enterprise (disk type in VMware is parallel, not SAS).
Was logged in as domain admin.
It installs, then right before it is finished-- just hangs with "removing backup files" message.
Cancel does not work. Can't exit the install. Needed to reboot the VM. SSR 2013 can't connect to the drives (but the services are present and can be started). Have not tried the trick of resizing the drives-- to get SSR to be able to see the drives (that was recommended and worked for a physical machine in which SSR console could not connect to the drives)
Any idea how to get past the "removing backup files" message?
I tried a reinstall/repair-- but the same thing happened. Luckily I have a snapshot jujst prior to the install.
I've reverted back to prior to the install.
