Re: Windows Server 2012 installation Failed

Hi,

 

Windows 2012 is not a supported operating system for G6 servers.

Thank You!
I am a HP employee.

Re: Windows Server 2012 installation Failed

That doesn't seem to match when the BL460 G6 page shows Windows 2012 drivers from HP for various hardware components on that server.

 

http://h20565.www2.hp.com/portal/site/hpsc/template.PAGE/public/psi/swdHome/?sp4ts.oid=3884099&spf_p.tpst=swdMain&spf_p.prp_swdMain=wsrp-navigationalState%3DswEnvOID%253D4138%257CswLang%253D%257Caction%253DlistDriver&javax.portlet.begCacheTok=com.vignette.cachetoken&javax.portlet.endCacheTok=com.vignette.cachetoken

 

Addtionally, the HP Smart Array 410i controller is listed as having Windows 2012 drivers here:

 

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=3902575&prodTypeId=329290&prodSeriesId=3902574&swLang=8&taskId=135&swEnvOID=4138

 

So for you to say it doesn't have support doesn't jibe. It clearly does have some level of "support".

 

I need a mass storage driver that will let me see the drives so I can partition and install Windows 2012. I have tried all available drivers and they all say they don't match my hardware, and even when I tell it to install the driver anyways it won't see any drives.

 

Where can I find one that works please? Thank you.

Also, the chart on page 5 on your Windows 2012 install doc here:

 

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c03305495/c03305495.pdf

 

shows that the BL460c G6 IS supported as a minimum.
