Currently, DigitalOcean only supports Linux and Linux-based OS’s.Custom ISO’s and Windows are not currently supported, thus you wouldn’t be able to use them just yet.

There are a few suggestions for custom images on the DigitalOcean Uservoice community, though it’s not yet a confirmed feature.

You can take a look over what’s currently suggested and share your feedback here:

Hello, all

Currently, DigitalOcean only allows the deployment of Linux based OS’s. You may be able to achieve this however by creating your own custom Windows ISO image and then using that when creating your Droplet.

Refer to the below link, which provides more insights:

I recommend that you add your vote to the Windows Server idea on our Product Ideas Board as well as commenting your use-case there so that our teams can better understand the demand for this.

Hope that helps!
