Can I spin up a Windows Server linode?
While it certainly is possible to install Windows on a Linode, we would not be able to help or provide support for it.
I've heard that the following URL has helped out other customers. However, it looks like this may be a bit out of date, but the process should be similar.
If you do get Windows up and running on a Linode, feel free to let us know by posting a response here to let us know how you got it done!
I got it to work (even with paravirtualization using VirtIO drivers), but it was a lot of trial and error, embedding the drivers in the Windows ISO, converting that ISO to a dummy USB stick that had to be converted in a RAW disk image, etc. If there’s appatite from Linode, I can write up a guide for the community.
