Hello. I have problem with installing windows on my droplet. 

I run the command  (via SSH to the server, not via the webwindow, cant write the | in the webwindow)

wget -O- http://mirror.whatuptime.com/xxxxx/betas/2016.STD.x64.EVAL.US-English.gz | gunzip | dd of=/dev/vda

it starts and downloads a bunch of files. 
it looks something like this:

2018-03-10 21:48:37 (288 KB/s) - written to stdout [4742419180/4742419180]
31457280+0 records in
31457280+0 records out
16106127360 bytes (16 GB, 15 GiB) copied, 1199.13 s, 13.4 MB/s
[* Rescue *] win2016-1vcpu-2gb-lon1-01:/opt/digitalocean#

I never get the bash-4-2# message, but i have a promt (like above) 
Is it done now ? should I turn off the droplet and contact digital ocean to dismantle the iso? or has something gone wrong?
thank you in advance!/Zac

You should be all set to request the rescue disk be removed and reboot your Droplet.

Excellent to hear!

We will be updating our guide shortly to reflect the changes to the DigitalOcean recovery system and to ensure our guide is clear.
