You can install Windows through manager, if you added your SPLA Windows licence. If you don't have a SPLA Windows licence and you want to use your own licence, you will need to do a custom Windows installation. You will not be able to use the installation routine in the manager.

Via the OVH Manager you can only install Windows if you pay OVH for a license (monthly fee, starting at €20 for Server Standard). To use your own license, you may install Windows using the procedure in the link in my previous post, tough I'm not sure it will work for OVH or SYS, as that was writen for KS.

I want to know if it is possible to make installation via OVH manager & then I use my own license key

Or upload the ISO of windows server then use the license key

If its possible via OVH manager it will be easier for installation

Maybe I'm wrong, but I think it's not posible at OVH. You may pay OVH for a SPLA license.

Also, another alternative would be to install Windows as someone found can be done for KS servers:

Not sure if that works, or if it's allowed by OVH, so try at your own risk.
