Heya @8c7a1db8c1af48f2816f2ab00c79c4,

I would assume the installation is stuck a choosing option and can’t proceed until an answer has been given. Have you provided the en_windows2012r2 image with an Autounattend file?

Hi there,

Keep in mind that DigitalOcean does not allow uploading or using Windows images on Droplets at this time.

This is due to licensing requirements and constraints imposed by Microsoft on infrastructure providers such as DigitalOcean. This includes using Windows images with your personal license. As a result, we are not able to provide any support or guidance for users attempting to upload or utilize the Windows OS on DigitalOcean.

We’re always looking for ways to improve our services, and these limitations may change in the future.

Additionally, our system is built for open source software and we encourage you to consider using open source software for your projects.

For more information, you can check out this page here:

Best,

Bobby
