Jamf Pro Not Installing on Intel Evo Laptop

New Contributor

Hey everyone,

I'm trying to install Jamf Pro on my Intel Evo Laptop [https://www.lenovo.com/ca/en/faqs/intel-evo/], but I'm having some issues with it. Specifically, the installation process seems to freeze and won't complete. I'm not sure what the problem is, but I was wondering if anyone else has had similar issues and knows how to fix it.

I've tried restarting my computer and reinstalling Jamf Pro, but the problem persists. I'm starting to wonder if the issue could be related to the Intel Evo platform.

Has anyone else experienced similar problems with Jamf Pro on an Intel Evo Laptop? If so, have you found any solutions? I'd really appreciate any help or advice.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Jamf Pro requires Windows Server as the OS .. you have that on your laptop?  Better to spin up a VM..

The system requirements require Windows Server, Ubuntu or RedHad Enterprise. The install logs should tell you that you do not have Windows Server. You either need a Server Host or to spin a VM and install a Server OS on it.
