    Dear Bhanu,

    yes, of course, Win2012 is supported for x3100m4:

    MS OS and OS Extension Information
    http://www-03.ibm.com/systems/info/x86servers/serverproven/compat/us/nos/microsoft.html

    Use IBM ServerGuide CD for easy OS installation:

    IBM ServerGuide

    I was running Windows Server 2012 Evaluation 180 days.

    Then recently I purchased a Windows Server 2012 Standard License; and Microsoft told me that i have to reinstall Windows (fresh install).

    I reinstall it from the windows DVD (downloaded from License Centere); but it gets stuck at the-blue-windows-and-the-circle-ring screen. 

    Is it posible if i install windows without the Server Guide CD?
