We are often asked in our support if it is possible to install Windows on a virtual server.

I have an OpenVZ (Cloud) vServer

If you have rented a Mini Server, Power vServer or High-Line vServer from us, you can only install Linux. This is due to the virtualization method we use. It only allows Linux guests. You can switch to a KVM server so that you can install Windows.

I have a KVM server

If you have rented a configurable KVM server with the „Windows“ option, you can install Windows as often as you like via the Cloud Manager.

If you chose the Linux option when ordering, this is not a problem. You can switch the server to Windows in the upgrade/downgrade settings easily and free of charge. You only have to start the Windows installation afterwards.
