  • You should be able to use a special installation mode called "server reinstallation" if/when you decide to install the fully licensed software. This mode will allow you to preserve the data in your shares, and your home computer backups.

    If your PCI card requires drivers, you'll need to supply them during setup.

    You might want to look over the documentation area on Microsoft's WHS web site.

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