Windows Server 2008 R2 on Flexflash?

We recently received a UCS C240 M3 which has two SD card slots (flexflash).  Is it possible to install Windows Server on the SD cards?  The documentation says you could use if for an OS but stops short of mentioning Windows.  Of course the limited and fixed size the HV partition could be a hold up in and of itself.  Any thoughts while I wait on my HDDs?

Thank you.

Hi Daniel,

The hypervisor partition on the flex flash is only 4GB as wdey mentioned. The windows 2008 installation requires a minimum lun size of 10GB so it would not be enough for this purpose (see windows 2008 requirement below).

Forget Windows, Flexflash (SD) has 16 GB, internal USB only 4 GB capacity; I only have seen/done ESXi installations on this devices.

Thanks for the response.  I figured as much with the limited space.
