Exchange 2019


Trying to install exchange 2019.
Simple question: how can I change directory to install exchange?

When clicking browse in setup and specify a drive it give me the next error: the selected installation directory isn't a valid directory for installing exchange server

I try many times to switch from directory and it only allow to be installed in C drive.

    Indeed, the correct place to ask such questions is the TechNet forums. But just to give you a quick quote from the documentation (which you should read thoroughly before installing anyway!):

    You can't install Exchange in the root of a drive (for example, C:), or on a ROM drive, RAM disk, network drive, removable disk, or unknown drive type.

    What happens when you try? I just created a test post there no problem. There are posts in forum as recent as two hours ago, so the forum is actively accepting posts.
