The Windows Server 2012 server operating system was released by Microsoft in September 2012. Dell is working towards a release of Windows Server 2012 on supported Power Edge platforms in 2nd half of 2012.  At Dell Release customers will be able to order Dell platforms with a pre-installed version of the operating system.

Microsoft Windows Server 2012 installation media includes a set of included Inbox Drivers which support the majority of Dell PowerEdge Servers.  Please refer to Inbox Drivers Blog for complete list.

While most Dell drivers will be inbox to operating system, there are out-of-box drivers specific to hardware components.  You can also download and install upgraded versions of inbox drivers separately.
