Re: Problem with hp dl360e g8 and windows server install

Seems your Windows media is BIOS-locked (OEM/ROK) and so will only install directly on the server.

I know in VMware there is a workaround that allowes the Windows installer to "see" the actual BIOS string and install.
I am not aware of a similar workaraound for Xen.
