Another Nano Server Post….(this time using Virtualbox/Windows 2016 TP4)

Microsoft has yet to release an iso that allows you to install Nano Server onto a server. The standard method seems to be to create a VHD and then use that to run Nano.

I was at a conference the other day, and managed to work through the process of getting a server up and running in VirtualBox 5.


Nano Server.

I’ve been attempting for days to get a VHD of Nano Server (Windows 2016 TP3) up and running from the instructions on Microsoft and on the Microsoft Virtual Academy. I’ve been having issues with the new-nanoserverimage.ps1 just quitting and not giving any error text
back. I knew it wasn’t working as the image wasn’t getting created.
