View Full Version : Converting Windows Server 2008 R2 Into A Worstation

05-18-2009, 05:34 AM
I was just playing around with RC1 build 7100 of Windows Server 2008 R2 to find out how well it would work as a workstation. Well, it works wonderfully! It just takes a bit of optimizing to make the OS fit the workstation role.

I created a guide which shows all of the steps I've taken and also highlights how to fix common problems like AHCI compatibility with the installer and what to do if you already tried to patch the uxtheme files unsuccessfully using the wrong patching software.

I would appreciate any feedback I can get before I post it elsewhere or to my own website! :D
