Windows Home Server 2011 OEM 09/15/2011
This review is from: Microsoft Windows Home Server 2011 64-bit - OEM
I'm sure there are many but I'll probably never know.
Got the OEM version - Mistake! While I am not a certified tech I have built dozens of computers, servers, workstations, etc. I've also set up several network domains from small to large - so, I'd guess I'm not a complete idiot. However, this OEM install requires a separate "tech" computer, knowledge of Microsoft's OPK deployment service, and WAYYYYY to much time for someone like me. The last OEM OS I did was several XP workstations so I'm sure I'm behind the curve on all this. BUT - buyer beware, this is not your typical pop & drop GUI based installation. At least for me it wasn't. I'm not giving up but before I go promoting "Home Servers" (which I think is a great idea) I"m going to have to learn a LOT more. So, it may be great software but I'm not a "great" installer.
