  • Doing so isn't supported. HP would have to provide a new server recovery disk with Windows Home Server 2011 on it, and that disk would have to perform a factory reset (since Drive Extender no longer exists, and hardware requirements have changed significantly, there's no way to simply upgrade the OS). It is possible, however; Google (or your search engine of choice) will find you several tutorials on how to do it.

    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
