    Installing Windows Server 2012

    Hello,
    I just downloaded the R2 ISO from the volume licensing website, burned it to a disc and am attempting to install it on a laptop.
    This is only temporarily so we can trial the OS.

    The problem is, it loads the disc and then says 'Load Driver'.
    'No device drivers were found. Make sure that the installation media contains the correct drivers, and then click OK.'


    Tried burning a new disc and still the same problem, any ideas?

    Find the storage drivers for your hardware and then click load drivers and point it to a usb pen with the drivers on, load the drivers and away you go - you should be able to use 64bit windows 8 drivers if its a laptop.

    Could always test it on a virtual machine instead.

    Could you not put Win7 etc on the laptop and run a free VM player like Virtual Box?

    not ideal but you could probably change the hdd mode from ahci to ide (or whatever that particular pc calls it) in bios it will probably install then. Also if its new enough disabling secure boot and uefi might help
