installing windows server 2016

Hey guys so i just got a fresh hp proliant dl370 g6 with four SFF 160gb harddrives. I've tried installing vmware and that worked but im now looking to install windows server 2016 but everytime i get to select a boot disk it says that my system can not boot off of this device and to enable the disk controller in bios. I believe it is because of the different disk format and was wondering if anyone could lend a hand. Thank you

Also how should i go about updating the firmware if i have no OS installed yet?


Re: installing windows server 2016


First, check the Windows 2016 compatibility with ProLiant Server.

Second, if you want to update firmware when OS is not installed, then click here and here is the user guide.

Thank You!
