That's really cool! Thanks for the instructions! I've installed Windows Server 2016 with no issues on a ZFS volume. Works fine. I can get the command prompt, set up IP address and so on. However I cannot get Remote Desktop connection working. I tried to (re)enable it from the command line: C:\Windows\system32>reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server" /v fDenyTSConnections /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f The operation completed successfully. C:\Windows\system32>reg add "hklm\system\currentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server" /v "AllowTSConnections" /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f The operation completed successfully. C:\Windows\system32>net start Termservice The Remote Desktop Services service is starting. The Remote Desktop Services service was started successfully.
