Windows Server 2012 R2 install on Dell R520 – boot order issue

Installing Windows Server 2012 R2 on a Dell PowerEdge R520. Initially had problems with the “We couldn’t create a new partition or locate an existing one” error. Fixed by going into the bios and changing the boot order so that the internal SD card module came second rather than first (which was needed to make it boot from the SD cards).
