Windows Lite Templates Support(Bios/Uefi boot) KVM/XEN/Hyper-V Virtualization

Hi Guys,

As many of you are aware, I have been building lite templates allowing Microsoft Windows to be easily installed onto servers from AWS Cloud/Google Cloud/Microsoft Azure Cloud/Oracle Cloud/Other, etc. and making them available via my website: .

I have been creating windows suitable for use on low-end machines. You can run windows 7 smoothly on machines with 512M RAM.

Get the template from

For example 1: The name of the template file, winsrv2016-data-x64-us.vhd.gz is suitable for booting in the BIOS
For example 2: The name of the template file, winsrv2016-data-x64-us-efi.vhd.gz is suitable for booting from UEFI

You can use script to install automatically under Debian/Ubuntu
apt-get update
apt-get install -y xz-utils openssl gawk file
wget --no-check-certificate -qO '' && bash -dd 'Template download link'

You can also use rescue mode to install
wget --no-check-certificate -qO- "Template download link" |gunzip -dc |dd of=/dev/vda

How to check whether the VPS can use the template?
Under Debian/Ubuntu
Install: apt-get install virt-what
command: virt-what
Shown as kvm/xen/hyper-v
All three are suitable, others are not.

Detect VPS UEFI or BIOS boot
Install: apt-get install efibootmgr
command: efibootmgr

I can say for sure, support Oracle Cloud for free use,I have been running Windows Server 2012 R2 stably for more than a year.

All windows templates do not have activation, please use genuine authorization by yourself
