Setting up Windows 2008 with MOSS
Bob Fox just posted an excellent walkthrough on setting up Windows Server 2008 with MOSS in his lab environment. A timely article as I’m about to take the plunge and go dual-boot with Vista and Win2k8 on my tablet.
So far, I was able to easily transfer my Vista partition onto a portable drive then swap the disks out (FYI, the bigger portable drives – 160GB plus – from WD and Maxtor are all SATA on the inside so you can burn your existing image then crack the case and scavenge the bare drive if your notebook has a SATA drive already) which was a bit shocking considering all the horror stories I read about Vista partitions. I used Acronis True Image 11.0 to do the transfer – it produced a perfect Vista image the first time around.
My goal is to use Win2k8 as my primary boot environment so we’ll see how that goes, especially with VS Orcas, Office and SQL all running on the same box…
