"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

There are reports of people installing Server 2016. However, Intel has not yet validated his Operating System for this Server Board.

We've been Intel Server System builders for a very long time. Currently, we have Server 2016 installed on any Intel Server System from SR2625UR and newer.

Make sure all of the Intel virtualization feature sets in the BIOS are turned on.

There are lots of BIOS setting pointers among others in my EE article Some Hyper-V Hardware and Software Best Practices.
