Online.net Dedibox XC/SC 2016 Windows Templates

ihadpihadp Member
edited September 2016 in General

Hi Guys,

I recently needed to install Microsoft Windows on a couple of my Online.net Personal Range servers (XC/SC 2016) and as such built a few templates. Since a lot of my information on how to correctly build the templates came from the forums here I figured I would share back with the community.

2012 R2 Standard

http://ovh-bhs.mirror.whatuptime.com/Microsoft_Windows_Server_2012_R2_Standard_VL_x64.gz

2012 R2 Datacenter

http://ovh-bhs.mirror.whatuptime.com/Microsoft_Windows_Server_2012_R2_Datacenter_VL_x64.gz

Windows 10 Enterprise

http://ovh-bhs.mirror.whatuptime.com/Microsoft_Windows_10_Enterprise_VL_x64.gz

Notes

-No license keys, cracks, etc. are included nor will be provided. Please go purchase a legitimate license key before you use the above templates.

-The templates are base Windows installation with minor changes to allow for them to correctly work on the hardware and be accessible via RDP.

-You should run Windows Updates once you have the template installed, there are next to no updates included with the templates!

How to Install

1) Boot your server into rescue mode (Ubuntu 14) via the Online.net control panel.

2) Log into your server's rescue mode via SSH

3) Run the following commands:

sudo -i

wget -O- '**http://use-one-of-the-links-above-or-your-own**' | gunzip | dd of=/dev/sda

4) Once the above command completes, reboot your server back to normal mode using the Online.net control panel.

5) Once your server has booted (Give it some time), you can then log into RDP using your server's IP address and the following credentials.

2012 R2

Username: Administrator

Password: [email protected]

Windows 10

Username: WhatUpTime.com

Password: [email protected]

6) Grab & run https://sdi-tool.org/download/ - Use the tool to install any/all missing drivers.

7) Reboot

8) Activate with your license key & enjoy!


I will keep the links alive as long as I am able, please do not abuse them as it will ensure I remove them.


The above templates should work for Kimsufi servers as well, in theory they will work for any server with Intel CPU's & Intel NIC's...they should even work for Hyper-v, KVM, etc.

Please do let me know if you test the templates on other hardware. Depending on issues faced I am happy to make changes to improve compatibility.

    Yes, it should.

    I believe the Scaleway dedicated servers are identical to those provided by Online.net's Personal Range.

    Scaleway is owned by Online.net.

    Please do report back on success or failure!

    Relax! I will be creating a rather in-depth guide on how to inject the necessary drivers into the OS and then creating the template using DD. It will be posted on my website once complete, www.whatuptime.com.

    The information to create the templates is also available here in the forums as well, just need to sift through a few threads.

    Would you mind elaborating on where you ran into an issue, you weren't able to boot from the HDD when you were done with rescue mode?

    using my own templates it just does not boot (since as i said it boots from the network rather than the SSD)

    it's seen as this

    /nbd then ssd

    Unfortunately I don't have any scaleway servers as of present, maybe once a few donations have come in I can grab one and begin digging into ensuring the templates also support it.

    I built the guide assuming the average user may not be technically inclined at all. Hopefully it reads well and makes sense.

    No worries.

    I am doing a clean reinstall again; following the instructions. Will update once complete to see if I still get the same issue.

  • Any plans on creating a 2016 template?

    I have a "better" guide here which may help - http://www.whatuptime.com/ (I am still working on it, but it may help)

    Should you still be unable to get it working, send me a PM and I will help the best I can.

    It should, however I do not have a Kimsufi server at this time to do testing.

    it's been on initiating the remote connection around a hour now after clicking restart on update, any help ?
    shall i use online.net reboot ?

    Edit : maybe drivers too time it's connecting now
    but still as a noob want to know is it okay to restart from online.net panel if anything happens ?

  • TarZZ92 said: anyone got it working on scaleway yet? i was unable to with my own templates (as it boots from the network rather than local hdd)

    I am afraid this cannot be installed in a scaleway server... In fact, there is no way to install personal iso to scaleway or even proxmox, because of the infrastructure of the service... Booting own kernel does not work, since scaleway boots from their own kernels...

    You likely just underwent a major update to Windows Anniversary Edition, that new major update takes a long time to complete.

    Yes, you can reboot via their control panel if you absolutely need too, however when doing updates I would advise leaving it sit for a while...especially on these low end CPU servers.

  • This is what you get for not following the true path of Free Software and using Windoze.

  • For those using Windows 10 to remote into the machine remember to use LOCALACCOUNT/WhatUpTime.com to connect to the box otherwise it would use MicrosoftAccount domain (or atleast it did for me). Seemed to solve my issue and i can remote in to my box now.

  • well i did follow and let get window update itself for updating any possible drivers and win 10 not able to turn off windows
    after anniversary new update again
    this is going to last otherwsie it's going to bug me again and again
