How to install Microsoft Server 2012 on HP ProLiant Servers

The HP Smart Start Disk that is shipped with all 3xx series servers and above, does not currently support Microsoft Server 2012 as yet. HP however has made this very handy step by step guide to help you get up and running with Server 2012 without the use of the Smart Start Disk.

As soon as Smart Start supports Server 2012 I will notify on a new blog post and link it from here as well.

In the meantime please download the white paper below (By clicking on the HP Logo) for the instructions on how to install 2012 without Smart Start.

If you need help with any additional details or need a HP server solution then please contact us and we will be happy to help you.

**UPDATE** Intelligent Provisioning (Which replaces SmartStart on a Gen8) now supports Windows Server 2012 - Please click This link (Intelligent Provisioning)
