|Sometimes and mostly on ESXi (tested on vSphere ESXi 6.5 and 6.7) you cannot install OEM branded Windows Server 2012, 2016 or 2019 with Fujitsu OEM media, because the following error pops up:
This installer is designed to load only in virtual environments supported by Fujitsu and/or the virtual machine provider
Try editing VM configuration file and add one of those parameters:
Code: smbios.addHostVendor = "TRUE"
Code: SMBIOS.reflectHost = "TRUE"
