Couple of things to note based on my experiences so far following with virtual machines rather than physical:

  1. Where the notes say "Note: If you are deploying on a vmware/esxi environment, be sure to change your network adapter type inside your vmx files to e1000e." - This holds true for KVM/Virt too. I suspect all other hypervisors too. The WIndows Server install only seems to work with this adapter type. Anything else and the run_install.ps1 scripts start to throw network connectivity errors.

  2. Similar, any virtual hard disks need to be IDE or SATA otherwise the Windows Server installer will not recognise them. I started off with virtio (KVM/Virt) and hit problems.

Now if I could just get past the "Windows cannot find the Microsoft Software License Terms" error message ...
