Bugs[edit | edit source]

Installation[edit | edit source]

ACPI[edit | edit source]

On some computers and virtualizers, ACPI must be turned off or setup might crash while loading.

VirtualBox[edit | edit source]

When upgrading from build 2031 or build 2068 on some machines, after the "Installing devices" section of the setup, the screen will turn black and will not come back. The only workaround is to boot to the CD, repair the install, and proceed with the installation as usual. This server SKU-specific bug persists until build 2190.
