Updating OS for WHS question ... RRS feed

  • Question

  • I was kinda wondering, and this is just a thought more than a question, but don't know if anyone has even thought or tried this.

    I saw during the installation of WHS that his is built off of Windows Small Business Server 2003 .. what are the chances of having a version of Windows Small Business Server 2008 and updating the WHS ??

    Me just brain storming .. has anyone tried this ?  and was it successful or failure ?

  • I don't think that is possible given the huge difference between Server 2003 and Server 2008.

  • Would be an interesting test or experiment .. problem is, like Windows Vista and for what I have seen with Windows Server 2008 .. the feature to "Upgrade" has been disabled !!! so unless Microsoft brings out a release of Windows Small Business Server 2008 that has the "Upgrade" option available .. we are out of luck :(
