Hi, I want to install Hyper-V Windows Server 2012 on a server with Windows Server 2003, but its 32-bit.
Already installed windows server 2008 64-bit on it but now the Hyper-V server 2012 installation won't start. When I try to boot from the CD it loads the files and says:
Your PC needs to restart. Please hold down the power button.
And when I click on the CD while running Windows Server 2008 RS it says:
Windows installation cannot be started from the current operating system.


Software/Hardware used:
hyper v windows server 2012, windows server 2008

    If understood correctly, your system is 32 bit while you are trying to install 64 bit based cd/dvd setup. Generally this is not supported, while if your system is 64 bit then it can support 32 bit.

    Is there any problem to collect licensed version of 32 bit cd/dvd. Or you just try/ experiment on the same.

    You should change your OS to Windows 2012 as the 2003  support has been discontinued since long time.
