Xenserver 7 with all of the updates through December 2016 installed.


When trying to install Windows Server 2016 Essentials edition, during install an error comes up saying "The computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an error. Windows installation cannot proceed."


When I tried installing the Windows Server 2016 Standard edition, the install was completed with no issues.

Hi Gary,

I'm having the same problem here. No matter how many times I try, I'm always getting the same error.

Did you manage to overcome this problem?
