Windows Server 2016 Standard won't boot after install of Hyper-V

    Question

  • Asus P6X58D-E

    24GB Ram

    Adaptek 5405 storage controller (RAID 1)

    Adaptek 6805 storage controller (RAID 5)

    i7 970 (ACPI\GenuineIntel_-_Intel64_Family_6_Model_44)

    Hyperthreading enabled

    After installation of Hyper-V feature the system will be rebooted, but it will never come up again.

    I have tried it several different ways trying to guess what might the problem be. The results are reliable across many different Hyper-V installation options.

    I am about ready to toss the MOBO. If there is any other way, the help would be much appreciated.

  • Since it is an unsupported desktop board your best shot (no guarantees) is to flash the latest firmware, install chipset and drivers for Windows 10 x64 (same kernel)

  • or install Windows 10 if it supports all features like SLAT and do nested Hyper-V in a VM for getting used with Server 2016

  • The bios and chipset are the first you would want to update. The chipset allows the operating system to find and use devices integrated into the mobo. I just looked at what drivers / OSs were on their web site.

  • Thanks, Dave, for getting back to me.

    Re: install chipset and drivers for Windows 10 x64

    You are suggesting that I seek out all the Windows 10 drivers I can find for the chipset on my board and for any other equipment that I have installed, right?

    Also, let's say I find another MOBO to use. Where would I go to check and how would I know that it is supported? For example, ASUS Z10PE-D8 WS. 

    Thanks in advance,
