DL380g5 installing Windows 2012



I would like to install Windows 2012 on one of my dl380g5s. I can't find a SmartStart that will support this. I have downloaded SPP, but that doesn't have any Windows installation options.


Do I just boot from the Windows disk and update all the drivers after installation? What is the recommended way to get Windows 2012 on this box?


Best wishes
