Awesome, thank you for your donation!

We have just begun to build the next batch of templates and it will take up to a few weeks before they are all completed. We are beginning with the VirtIO-SCSI and then proceeding to the regular VirtIO and then finally to the dedicated server templates (The dedicated server templates are far more problematic).

With whom do you have your KVM virtual machine?

With some small IDC ,they all use KVM on Solusvm,they're all VirtIO

So I'm more interested in VirtIO templates .

Gotcha!

Have you already installed another version of Microsoft Windows onto your VPS using our templates to confirm they are indeed working?

If so, which version of Microsoft Windows are you preferring? We should be able to bump it up on the to do list so you can get it installed sooner 🙂

One more thing,is it possible to make the templates as small as possible?

You know,when we use it on a server,we only need basic functions and if you can make it a simplified one,it can be used on a more cheaper VPS.

The templates we provide are untouched installation of Microsoft Windows, we do not install any additional software/features nor do we remove anything. Once you have the template installed you are able to do anything you like to cut down on the total size, though there really isn't much you can do.

That said, with the new batch of templates we are building now you will be able to install them onto systems that have as little as 10GB of disk space.

Do you know the Windows Thin PC?

I think it is a better one for small memory VPS?

Do you have any plan to make a template of it?

It's not something I have ever touched, however I will add it to the list to investigate when time allows.
