Nice to Know–Installing Windows Server 2012 R2 now works on HP Proliant Microserver

Posted by Mikael Nystrom on November 27, 2013

Finally the firmware upgrade is available, there is a lot of “Microservers” out there that really need to run Windows Server 2012 R2, but that has more or less been a very bad experience so far. The issue is simple, the built in NIC does not work, in fact it freeze the installation so badly that the only way to get the OS installed is to disable the NIC in BIOS and then find another and put it in one of the two slots available.

Anyhow, here is the firmware upgrade you need to be able to run WS2012 R2 on a Microserver AND use the built in network…:-)
