    WHS 2011 is based on Windows Server 2008 x64, so those drivers will work.

  • No, WHS2011 is not based on Windows Server 2008. It is based on Server 2008 R2, meaning it shares the Windows 7 codebase, while Windows Server 2008 shares the Vista codebase.

    Therefore you can also try the package from http://www.nvidia.com/object/quadro-tesla-win7-winvista-64bit-276.42-whql-driver.html.

  • Olaf,

    Thanks for catching my slip.  Too many late nights here in Korea.  My bad.

    No, WHS2011 is not based on Windows Server 2008. It is based on Server 2008*R2*, meaning it shares the Windows 7 codebase, while Windows Server 2008 shares the Vista codebase.

  • Thank you so much for your response, however neither suggestion worked.  WHS 2011 is a good OS, but finding correct drivers is a problem.

  • You downloaded the drivers and they failed to install?

    Two possibilities:

    1. Try to extract them first. This is described here and should work for you as well.

    2. Run the setup program in compatibility mode (right click and launch compatibility assistent or right click/Properties/Compatibility tab/check the box and select Windows 7).

  • Olaf Engelke,

    Is this relative to Windows Home Server 2011?  It does not appear to.
