Need to install Windows Server 2008 on a windows 8 box
Posted on 2013-12-25
I have a newer windows 8 computer with an A8 processor, 8gb ram, 1tb hd. I need to install windows server 2008 r 2.
I don't think dual boot will work due to windows server 2008 being older than windows 8, so do I repartition the hard drive and format it, then install windows server 2008 R 2?
If so, are there abnormal problems I need to be aware of?
I am guessing I will have driver issues. I heard windows 8 computers have special driver considerations. Please comment...
Or what other course should I take? I need to build a .Net web server with a static IP.
