SR530 (ThinkSystem) - Type 7X08

2020-06-23, 2:21 AM

Can SR530 (ThinkSystem) - Type 7X08 support Windows Server 2012 R2? I get the the below error during the installation. Anyone have idea for this?

Hello Tom_IThelp,

 

Welcome to the community!

 

According to the server proven website it is supported:

Looks like the driver for the HDD is missing. Have you tried using LXPM to install the OS. This typically comes pre-loaded with standard drivers for most supported operating systems:

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

For our case, we find the windows server 2012 R2 doesn't list in the OS Edition. so we can not install the os using LXPM

Thanks for your reply. It seems the ws 2012 had been removed at version 1.6. I downgrad the LXPM to 1.6 and the window server 2012 R2 dosen't list.  Where can we download those older version LXPM and I only can find the version 1.9 on the lenovo website.
