Hi

For the VPS classic range, windows isn't available as an OS.

For windows it has to be an VPS cloud.

The OVH VPS cloud windows template install windows as its own. Depending on the additional server roles, it may take additional space.

For the VPS, if you do find out that your running out of space on the VPS cloud 1, you can upgrade it to the VPS cloud 2 within your manager whilst preserving the same IP address and the data on the VPS.

Not up to me to answer that, but it wouldn't really be the fault of OVH that Microsoft recommend more than what OVH provide.

It'd hardly be false advertising as they do provide the license for free.

I'm interested in ordering this model to take advantage of its free windows license but notice it has a small hard drive of 25 GB. Does that mean I cannot run Windows Server 2012 R2 because it requires a minimum: 32 GB as specified here? https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/.../dn303418.aspx or does the OS not count towards the 25 GB hard drive space this model has?

I plan to run a LAMP stack or alternative webserver, a hosting control panel, teamspeak3, and few medium sized websites.

Thank you for having the patience to read my post.
