Fresh XenServer 7.1 installation, trying to install Windows 2016 Evaluation. Few seconds after pressing the Install button, I'm being asked for a disk device driver from Windows, which I don't know where to get.

The VM is being created with the Windows 2016 server template, but I tried also with Windows 10 and Windows 2012R2 ones, same identical result.

Anyone knows where can I find those drivers, or if there's a working install procedure for Windows 2016 in XenServer?

    odd... using the en-US version of the ISO instead of the it-IT went through! I'm installing! Still puzzled what's wrong with the Italian version...

    Yours is a real answer. If someone comes along with a more detailed explanation, so be it; but yours is helpful and worth posting in either case. May 4 '17 at 4:36

I solved myself, the culprit ended up being the localized Italian installation ISO of Windows 2016. Trying with the en-US version the installation went straight.
