MicroServer Gen8 and Windows Hyper-V Server 2012 R2

MicroServer Gen8 and Windows Hyper-V Server 2012 R2

I have a MicroServer Gen8 G2020T.  I am attempting to install Windows Hyper-V Server 2012 R2 using Intelligent Provisioning.  I am selecting Hyper-V Server 2012 (R2 is not available in the dropdown), and attaching the iso through iLO.  After copying files, rebooting, loading the drivers, and getting into Windows Setup, the system states that 'There are no images available'.  Is Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2012 R2 supported for this server?

Yes, 2012 R2 work fine, but you must force to install the SmartArray B120i driver for 2008 R2 (Driver version cp019590).


The Smart Array driver cause Blue Screen with Windows Server 2012 R2 !!!


HP know the issue and maybe be corrected in a next release.
