Can you help me with the installation of sbs 2011 essentials on a HP ProLiant ML110 G6? The easy CD that came with the system only supports up to SBS 2008. I had downloaded the  Release Candidate for Windows Small Business Server 2011 Essentials but can't get it to install.

Please help - I'm a bit of a novice but the sbs essentials review say I don't need to be an expert.

Watch for release 8.7 on the HP web site it will allow you to use the "easy CD" install process with SBS 2011. It is supposed to be released very soon if not already.

You might also look into an SBS "Swing" Migration. http://www.sbsmigration.com/

These migrations are awesome and are incredibly simple. You also don't encounter much if any downtime. It beats the hell outta using the HP "Easy CD" as I have done those in the past too.

Since there has been no reply since the March request, HP Smart Start 8.7 has been made available for download. When using it and SBS 2011 essentials, select the Server 2008 R2 option (which is the underlying base O/S for SBS 2011e) as per the following HP document. http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c02867737/c02867737.pdf
