I am trying to install hyper-v server 2012 on my sun x4100, it has 8gb of ram and I have set aside 100gb hd space for install. I have tried installing thru ILOM, and that was slow and did not complete. I then put the installations files on a usb stick. It loads up fairly quickly then slows to a drag, even modifying the drive properties takes forever. with 2 hours it is at around 65% install, it then errors out.
here is the error
windows could not install the required files make sure all files required for installation are available ,and restart the installation. error code 0x80070037
I had installed server core 2008 on this server before, I do not remember it being slow during the install and actually 2 of my memory sticks were not seated at the time it was only utilizing 4gb

Sorry to say but your server is not certified for Windows Server 2012
Try to upgrade BIOS and consult your problem with server vendor which is at present time is Oracle.

Saturday, January 26, 2013 4:30 PMI had posted this question on oracle forums too, maybe they will have a suggestion...sadly they don't freely give out already made firmware upgrades. I had installed server core 2008 on another system last year it was completely free....but when I went to install it on this server it was just a trial version , that is one reason why I had to reinstall, I had finished the eval period. is there a way for me to get server core 2008 free?

The "only" core you get free of charge is the HyperV from Microsoft:
Microsoft Hyper-V 2008 R2 (Free of charge)
Microsoft Hyper-V 2008 R2 - SP1 (Free of charge)
Microsoft Hyper-V 2012 ISO (Free of charge)
Anything else you need to buy a license for it.
