* Windows 2008 : First Experience

So finally I have Windows 2008 running on one of my machines. It was quick and simple installation as compared to any of the previous versions of Windows.

First decision point while installing Windows 2008 is whether 'Full installation' is required or only 'Server Core'. Server core won't have any GUI and will be basic minimum.


After full installation here is the version information I have :

ver > Microsoft Windows [Version 6.0.6001]



Not sure of Service Pack 1 here. y ?

Although it was a 'Full Installation', none of the features get enabled by default. Enable as per requirement. More on this later.

  1. Yep, the RTM version of Win2k8 is really Win2k8 SP1.

    I chatted a little about it here, Windows Server 2008 SP1
