Okay, so you want to install Windows on your Kimsufi server? Cool! Just follow the instructions and you’ll have Windows installed within an hour!
These templates work on Kimsufi, Online.net, may also work on Hetzner.de and SoYouStart.com servers (but it is not guaranteed to work).
First of all disable monitoring, once disabled, boot into rescue mode (netboot) from the Kimsufi control panel. Wait a few minutes and an email will show up in your inbox with the details (username and password) of the rescue system.
Login at the rescue system using PuTTy (or your favorite SSH client) and follow the following steps.
Type the following command in the console
For Windows Server 2012 R2 (Also works on Online.net) (Doesn’t work on all Kimsufi Servers!)
wget -O- ‘http://rise.hostingfuze.net/KS2012R2.gz’ | gunzip | dd of=/dev/sda
For Windows Server 2008 R2 (Guaranteed to work on Any Kimsufi Server) <– Recommended
wget -O- ‘http://rise.hostingfuze.net/KS2008R2.gz’ | gunzip | dd of=/dev/sda
For Windows 8.1 (Also works on Online.net) (Guaranteed to work on Any Kimsufi Server)
wget -O- ‘http://rise.hostingfuze.net/KS8.1.gz’ | gunzip | dd of=/dev/sda
For Windows 7 (Ultimate Edition) (Doesn’t work on all Kimsufi Servers!)
wget -O- ‘http://rise.hostingfuze.net/KS7.gz’ | gunzip | dd of=/dev/sda
Once fully downloaded and unzipped to the disk go back to the Kimsufi control panel and change Netboot to Hard Disk. Once done, reboot the server and wait till it responds to ping. After that you can login using RDP (Remote Desktop Control)
Use the following credentials to login:
Windows Server 2012 R2 & 2008 R2
Windows 7 & Windows 8.1
The download link will fix in moment.
