Hi,

You will have to reformat the server.
Your Datacenter should be able to do that.

Hi

Not currently, SolusVM needs to be installed with Centos 5 then you buy the solusvm licence and install it on the server.

Why did you buy it with windows 2008 on it ? www.solusvm.com <- has the howto guides on it.

Thanks

Note that with OpenVZ you can have only Linux VPS.
For bith Linux and Windows you can use VMWare, KVM or Xen (with some limitations).

You can go with Hyper-V on Windows 2008 R2 for Linux as well if you need SUSE or RHEL.

With Windows Datacenter you do have more virtualization options, but Linux is not one of them. I would agree with Motiv and use Hyper-V.

I would also agree with Hyper-V, much better resource allocation!
