Windows Server 2008 RC0

October 10, 2007 at 7:23 pm Leave a comment

I installed W2K8 RC0 using MS VirtualPC 2007 today. It installed without a hitch and I fogot how much like Vista it was going to look. MS sure got their money’s worth out of that icon set. You can even add the Desktop Experience feature and get familiar Vista applications installed on your server. If (for some reason) you want to.

I’ll be experimenting with Windows Server Virtualization on this VM later this week.

UPDATE: No I won’t be, because WSV won’t run:

  • on a Virtual Machine
  • on a x86 version of W2K8

I need to build a hardware and x64 based server to experiment with WSV. So, probably next week instead of this week.
