Yes we do not plan on offering hypervm, cartwright118 have you looked at Proxmox for running Windows, the user interface is okay with it so you would not need to worry about command line.

I managed to install XEN by using the reinstallation feature in my manager So now i have Debian with XEN installed lol. I need to try and install HyperVM now, so i can control the virtual machines via my browser. Its very stressful not knowing how to use linux at all.

I followed a HyperVM tutorial step by step and it was going all good, but then when it asked me to put 'setenforce 0' it said incorrect command. Of course me not knowing linux, i didnt even know where to start looking for help lol.

SO yeah, stuck again

If Windows is all you'd like to use, simply allocate all available resources (HD, CPU, Memory) to a single XEN KVM; the performance hit of running it virtualised would then be minimal (in fact, I'm running Win7 with a bunch of other Linux containers and it's smooth as silk - so it really isn't that bad as some may say).
Hello Myatu,

Thank's for the suggestion and it sounds like a really good one, but my only problem with that would be I don't know the first thing about command line linux! So that would be an issue for me lol.

Thank you,
Regards. Chris.

Hi,

I was just wondering if anyone else was successful, as the posts i've seen were a few months back. Not everyone posts if they are successful in doing something, thank you.

Hi guys,

I'm sure by now you have seen people trying to load windows via vKVM on the dedicated box. Well i can say I've tried this evening and failed - It doesnt even load up the Windows Server 2003 setup screen. I use vKVM and log into VNC, it eventually loads up the iso file after about 15 minutes or so. States at the top 'loaded successfully' (or something simular) pops up asking to allow some java thing, but then carries on to boot into Linux. No sign of the windows setup screen

Does any one have any ideas for me to try? I only ordered the box today, so i have a few weeks left to get it working!

Thanks alot,
Regards.
Chris
