Now that “Windows Home Server 2011” (Vail), Windows Small Business Server 2011 Essentials (Aurora), and Windows Storage Server 2011 Essentials (Breckenridge) have hit RTM, there have been a lot of buzz about them. But what does that mean for me?
Mainly, it means that I need to download and install the Windows 7 AIK instead of the Vista version. Why? Because it’s based on the Server 2008R2 codebase which still lacks a *lot* of the newer drivers, such as the Intel ICH10R chipset drivers.
Will we be adding a lot of software and such to the images? That’s a very good question. There aren’t a whole lot of programs that really need to be or that we feel *should* be added to the image. But we shall see.
