I recently purchased a dedicated server from OVH (soYouStart SSD-2). I have been trying to use this server via a remote desktop interface to setup VMworkstation with no luck. With windows server 2008 I cannot even get to the desktop and with ubuntu desktop 12.02 I can get vmware installed but because of ovh's weird proprietary kernels, I can't get vmware workstation to run.
So, I am looking for someone familiar with OVH's servers to either guide me through the setup on windows server 8 or ubuntu desktop 12.02.
Can pay more than $30 for this service but next tier was $250 and that was way too much, lol.
