Why Windows Server 2016 installation freezes after few seconds??? RRS feed

  • Question

  • i tried to turn off usb devices, network, basically everything... it just freezes (there is this "wonderful" dots animation and then booom, no response, installation frozen). MS, your "software" is getting worse and worse... how about some logging??? how about some error messages? how about increasing quality control and more testing? no more wasting my time, moving to linux server...

  • None of this is required on supported hardware. I'd check here and with manufacturer that hardware has been certified for Server 2016.
