We have the current setup on the cluster we are trying to install Windows Server 2016 - we need to setup 16 of these servers on a nutanix cluster
AHV Nutanix 20160601.44
The install process report the following error; No new dvice drivers were found . Make sure the installation media contains the correct drivers.
This error is consistent despite using the recommended virtio iso
Solved! Go to Solution.
@roberthwl the newest version of VirtIO has already supported WS2016?
If so, I think there should be a compability of AHV version and VirtIO
Although it does not officially supported but because AHV is modified KVM based, you could give Fedora VirtIO for a try first
I had already tried different virtio scsi versions and it made no difference.
I have managed to boot a 2016 server using an ide disk format. I am looking at why the scsi drivers are not doing what they should on install. I reloaded the ms scsi adapter driver and was able then to see the scsi hdd.
I setup 2 x hdd with the same image I created on vmware - one as an ide and the other scsi
The server booted as normal on the ide drive and after installing the ms scsi adapter driver again and the virtio scsi driver the scsi hdd was seen and was able to mount it.
This works fine until there is an attempt to boot the server from the scsi hdd with all drivers loaded on it.
Fails with inaccessiable boot device error
Additional info: the iso was uploaded using IE and this seem to be at the root cause of the problem
