Link to OS installation document for SR550:   ServerGuide was for System x servers, not applicable to ThinkSystem servers.

Hello.

 

If you would like to use OS install solution for ThinkSystem, LXPM provide this function instead of ServerGuide.

 

Here is useful link for LXPM.

Hello.

 

LXPM 1.70 and later version have removed Windows2012 R2 installation support. Current version have Windows guided install for W2016 and W2019.

If you would like to use Windwos2012 R2 Guided install, once downgrade LXPM and windows driver package to 1.60.
