Install Windows on Blade Server without VM

Hi,

I have some queries regarding UCS B200 M2 Blade servers:

Can I install windows server OS directly on the blade server without VMware?

Will Cisco support this installation or not ”from the support point of view TAC”

Can we find drivers from Cisco?

Regards,

Anser

Hello Anser,

It is supported.

Please refer HCL to verify the compatibility between specific edition of Microsoft OS, UCSM firmware, blade model and adapters.

OS installation guide. It has also information about necessary files and download location.
