***On a side note after enabling Superfetch I had problems with diskcheck functioning correctly + slower performance, but maybe its just my pc.

***Also I had problems with copying file/s from one partition to another where the file/s would be finished copying with 0 seconds to go but the file copy screen would hang for a couple more seconds.

***I haven't had any speed/connection problems concerning with torrents although i have been getting the infamous "event id 4226". Well not 4226 but event id 4227. I tried using the latest tcpip patch but I continue to get the error... shrugs*

On a endnote; I basically had this same system setup as I did with Vista SP1 and these are some things I've noticed.

a) Boot up is almost identical maybe 5 - 10 seconds longer (max) on Server 08

b) Shutdown time is amazingly quick on Server 08 (under 10 seconds)

c) Although Vista SP1 is snappy I feel Server 08 is a little snappier.

d) No crashes yet though I never had any crashes with Vista (except when installing ZoneAlarm)...

e) All my drivers worked and are functioning correctly. I simply installed Vista Ultimate 32bit edition drivers for any that did not supply one specifically Server 08.

f) The number of UAC popups have significantly decreased. It wasn't until I got the installation errors that I noticed it was on. But even after disabling & reinstalling I still received those errors above. (The Nero 8 one anyway)

Mainboard: Intel D975XBX2
CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600
RAM: Corsair Dominator PC6400 4GB
GPU: Dual ATI X1950 Pro's in CrossfireX
