W8.1 upgrade to Windows 10 Pro on Gen8 MicroServer then ran SPP


Recommended Posts

I was rebuilding my MicroServer Gen8 again and wiped the OS drive and began installing Windows 8.1.  I wanted to see how easy it was to upgrade from W8.1 to W10 on the MS.


BTW, all I needed was the B120i driver -- Windows 8.1 has a generic driver like S2012R2 for the NIC .....


When Windows 8.1 was installed a window popped open offering me the opportunity to to upgrade to Windows 10 right there so I went for it.  Wow, easy peasy!


When Windows 10 was installed I next ran SPP (HP Service Pack ProLiant) and it failed because I was logged in with my MS account -- I switched to a Local Administrator Account and Boom!  All the drivers that were missing up to then were installed as well as the SSA!!  So far this is working great.  I switched on Hyper-V and imported a VM that I use for NASP testing -- double cool.
