You could always install Linux and then run Windows in a VM.

We perform testing on servers to ensure they are stable under the OS, for certain servers the Windows OS is unstable, due to this reason we don't allow the installation of Windows OS.

I'm not really sure what's the reason OVH won't offer Windows on all servers. It's surely not about price, as they charge for the license separately. However, if they do not offer it, you won't be able to install it from the Manager. There are some guides around the internet on how to perform Windows installation on different servers, but it may or not work. There are also some websites who offer to install Windows for a fee, and they are oriented for customers of different ISPs as OVH. Can't tell if any of them work. Just a tip: before you try anything, disable monitoring on the Manager.

So I have just been told my GAME-2 server does not support windows. Really? How can it be not possible to install windows? So many games run on windows, and without it I cannot run Ark: survival evolved.

Even though the exact same server on the OVH websites supports windows:

What's the difference?
