DL380g5 installing Windows 2012

Hi,

 

I would like to install Windows 2012 on one of my dl380g5s. I can't find a SmartStart that will support this. I have downloaded SPP, but that doesn't have any Windows installation options.

 

Do I just boot from the Windows disk and update all the drivers after installation? What is the recommended way to get Windows 2012 on this box?

 

Best wishes

Michael
