  1. Is it possible to install Windows Server 2003 R2 Eval onto a patitioned machine that runs Windows Home?

    I have patitioned using PartitionMagic - but running the discs that I downloaded from MS.com informs me that I cant set this up.

    Thanks

    thanks

    Hi there - upgrade.

    In the end I have simply upgraded to Windows Professional and then installed Virtual Server - my plan is to install windows server 2003 on that and try to then run sharepoint portal server to try out the new apps on that.

    Cheers
