 Hi,


Windows Server 2008 R2 was released just a couple of days ago on September 14th ó so now itís time for you to start thinking about installing or upgrading your Server 2008. Here are couple things to keep in mind.

First, the new Windows Server 2008 R2 can only be installed (or upgraded) on 64-bit servers.  If you have Server 2008 installed on a 32-bit server, you will first need to upgrade your hardware to 64-bit before upgrading to Server 2008 R2.
Another thing to think about is whether you want to install R2 from scratch or run an upgrade. Both options are available so it is up to you to decide.  When it comes to a clean install, it is quite easy and almost exactly the same as installing Server 2008.

Thanks,
Melby
