OEM Windows Server 2008 Enterprise

I purchased the OEM Windows Server 2008 Enterprise with the intention of running a full 2008 Enterprise server and the 4 virtual servers that this type of license allows. However, in when I try to use the OEM media in the Windows Hyper-V it balks because it does not see the HP Proliant hardware. The install will not continue.

Anyone having the same problem? Is there a workaround? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Andrew,

Boot with the Smart Start CD which came along with the server.

At the mid of Deployment wizard in Smart Start you will get an option to select the OS and partition size.
