How to disable/uninstall IPV6 on a Windows 2008 SBS

Hi Guys.

How can I properly disable the IPV6 on a Windows SBS 2008?
I tried to untick the IPV6 under the network connections tab then the server did not start in normal mode just in safe mode so i had to re-enable it.
I want to disable/uninstall it because as I read here it can cause sync problems with Iphones.

Thank you in advance!

Type 0x20 to use IPv4 instead of IPv6 in prefix policies.
