Power Edge 2850 running Windows Server 2012 R2

I am trying to get a Power Edge 2850 and 1850 to run Windows Server 2012, so far It gets past the loading screen then will reboot. I believe it has something to do with the drivers but not sure.

RE: Power Edge 2850 running Windows Server 2012 R2

We've been through the process several times here on the forums. Up to 2012 will work, but not 2012 R2; it is not supported and nobody has gotten it to work. I no longer have any 28x0 to test for a workaround ... IF one even exists. Good luck. In the unlikely event you happen to find a solution, be sure to post it.

2012 doesn't run great, but acceptably. 2008 R2 runs great. If you must have 2012 R2, then it is time for a new server.
