How to install from ISO (New KVM)

This is only for our New KVM based VPS, there are 2 different New KVM plans, click here for KVM based VPS.

First, you will login to our client product area and next to product you want, click Active button
Then
1. For one new kvm plan, you scroll down and under VPS Configuration click ManageMedia button
2. For other new kvm plan, you just Edit the CD/DVD Image file, see bottom screenshot.

NOTE:
1. If you selected Windows 2008 R2 ISO or any ISOs, you need to click "NoVNC Console" inside web panel to start the install process first before you can connect via RDP For windows Virtio drivers, you will want to also mount ISO called "virtio-win-0.1.105.iso". Browse to the ISO during install to select and install the virtio drivers. Once installed, when you see "Windows Loader" button, click it then click "Begin Install" to activate the windows. Do not click it if you do not want to activate the windows.
2. If you're getting error during install, it means you need more RAM and HDD Space, a lot of newer OS need min 512MB RAM and 15GB Space.
