I was wonder if anyone has experience with Windows Desktop Experience installed on a Windows 2008 Server. According to the TechNet response, there is a chance of the server crashing after the install. It has been enabled via server manager but I have not rebooted in fear of crashing the server. I turned on the feature while users where logged in, was planing to reboot after hours. It spewed out a lot of errors, but mostly says you need to reboot for install to complete. The server is still up and running A consultant said we need to rebuild it, since there is a great chance of failure.
Question Has anyone experienced the crashes or problems as posted in the TechNet below, if so was it recoverable! How did you recover the problem below!
Failure: got the same as Nikolaev: installing desktop experience resulted in an infinite loop of reboots! you'd better watch out...
fails to install: After reboot it starts to configure and at 25% it says "Failure configuring... Reverting..." Then it reboots again and again and again. Basically my server is dead after this "upgrade" Sad. Very sad.
