I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I would like to discus everyone?s failures and success with type of install.

In other Threads we have disused partitioning out the drive into 3 partitions to overcome problems.

So let?s hear about your installs.

:::Here is Mine:::

I want to put 5 2TB SATA drives in my Windows 2008 R2 server but while I was test installing Windows 2008 R2 refused to see the full space correctly. I am worried there is an issue with the Windows 7/2008 R2 code in relation to 2TB SATA drives. Seems to work great on SAS or SCSI.

Typically when I install 5 data drives in a server I use RAID 5. This typically shows up as 5 x size of drive. So when I have 5 500GB drives I see 2.5TB of space. (Note: I understand RAID and I know about parity and that it is NOT all useable space, but let?s just count it as space for the sake of this test).

Note: My OS is on a 2 mirrored 10K drives and not part of the RAID for data. When I install 5 2TB drives you would expect to see 10TB of space, however Windows Server R2 only shows it as 4TB of space. After checking settings and making lots of changes I finally got it to show as 2 partitions of 4TB and no hint of the 2TB of leftover space.

I switched between 250GB and 500GB drives (same machine, same Windows Server 2008 R2) just different drives. With the 250GB I get 1.25TB of space and with the 500GB again I get 2.5TB of space. Back to the 2TB drives and I only get 4TB of space.

I tried 3 different SATA controllers including the one on the motherboard (built-... Read more

Hi, We just received our HP Probook 650 G1.  We installed windows server 2008 R2 on it. We need to connect it to the network & internet (in order to activate the OS). But I coudn't manage to find any driver for the network adapter nor for the wifi adapter. Can you help me please.

I created the following performance counter using logman.exe. 

logman.exe create counter US_Triton_Perf_Log -b 9/23/2015 09:30:00 -e 9/30/2099 18:30:00 -r -s $server -si $frequence -cf $folder\$server.txt -f $logtype  -o C:\local\logs\Perfout_$Server --a -v mmddhhmm  -rf  $max_duration

When I do this across multiple servers specifically for Windows Servers 2008/2012, the counter is created to repeat and run everyday at 930PM and stops running everyday at 430PM. This works perfectly fine as intended. However, When I do this for a Windows
2003 server, my created counter is very different.
For example, in this case, I have set to the counters to start at 930AM and end at 1830PM, because I have set a maximum duration of 9 hours, the job terminates and begins on the next day, since I have the repeat option on. However, this does not apply to
our 2003 server; logman creates the job to run once a week in this case it would be on a Wednesday. In addiiton, I noticed that the job doesn't not even start at it's indented time. It actually does not start at all. I also notice that the jobs on all windows
2003 servers are created in a pending status, which then prevents me from removing the counter remotely. 

I would like to know if windows 2003 is capable of working like my win 2008/2012 servers using logman, and if historically, the job has to be kicked off through scheduled task. 

Both Jobs are using the same criteria, but a... Read more

Hi guys,
What free Antivirus software for servers?
What free anti-malware would NOT be a good idea?
My friend has purchased a Poweredge server to act as a fileserver for a private network not connected to the internet..  He uses 2 laptops at the most  to access files on the server.
However at some points he will update Windows Server 2008 plus odd bits by temporaily hooking up to the Internet., and obviously leave himself open to malware etc. for a short time.
The cost of server Antivirus is very high and usually effective for 10 workstations upwards, and obviously he would appreciate keeping costs down.
I would appreciate thoughts on ideas for avoiding a costly solution.
Also, if he got Malware on it (e.g. Rootkit or Delta) would current Bleeping Computer tools (e.g. Rkill, RogueKiller etc) still work on the server - or does it require another approach? 
I am asking fior advice BEFORE he gets started while options are open.
Thanks in advance guys

A:Free Server Antivirus ? e.g. for Windows Server 2008

The answer is fairly simple. Just read the details on the site -
Microsoft Security Essentials is available for small businesses with up to 10 PCs.
• Microsoft Security Essentials:
Microsoft updated it’s free Anti-Virus solution at the end of 2010 to support Windows 2008/R2.
This is easily one of the better free offerings as Microsoft has updated this solution to complete directly with some of the biggest solutions, such as Mcafee and Symantec paid versions.

When downloading, simply choose Windows Vista / Windows 7, as Microsoft has yet to update the website.http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/

We had:

1) 1 Windows Server 2003 running Active Directory services to manage logon and permissions for file sharing.
2) 15 workstations.

We now want to have:

1) 1 Windows Server 2008 R2 server running Active Directory services to manage logon and permissions for file sharing.
2) 15 same workstations, with their same user profiles.

So I joined the 2008 R2 server to the domain, and then used the dcpromo tool to make it a domain controller.

Problem is, whenever I take the old server offline, (the 2003 one) everything flips out, logons are slow, and the 2008 server gives people trying to access shared files weird errors like that the server that authenticated them cannot be contacted, and asks them to log in again with their username and password before accessing shared files on the server.

What did I do wrong? I must be forgetting something.

Hi all
Have been a LONG LONG user of Linux as a server (hosting VM's XP / W7 mix) and file / print sharing.

I used to avoid MS like the plague as far as SERVER environments are concerned - probably because my first experince was Windows NT (Windows NeanderThal or Windows No Thanks) which was SO HORRIBLE that it put me off Windows servers for ages.

(Note I'm using a server in a HOME environment where we have around 8 machines (most of which are actually mine for testing -- not a corporate environment which has other considerations).

The problem now with the latest Linux distros that they are trying to be "A Better Windows than Windows". You can of course customize them but I haven't got the time or patience to do this any more. To select what packages to install / leave out now is a 100% pain and if you do it wrong the chances are the system will give errors.

I've looked at the new SUSE 11.2 -- slick and polished - bit I don't NEED "an alternative Windows".

I've just been looking at Windows Server 2008 R2 (got it from Technet) and I'm REALLY IMPRESSED with it so far. I've installed the STANDARD version - you don't need datacenter or Enterprise version for a home server.

It runs vmware server on it just fine (although I might go the whole hog and use the Hyper-V virtualisation -- need to do a bit more research).

I'm quite happy letting MS do the updates than having to mess around with Kernel compiles etc.

I'm trying to decide between Windows Home Server and Windows Server 2008 R2 for my home server PC. Ordinarily it would be a clear cut choice, but I've got a free copy of Server 2008 R2 through my academic MSDN subscription. I'd like to avoid spending extra money if Server 2008 R2 would do the job. But I'm willing to buy Home Server should it prove necesary. Any input is appreciated. Thanks.

A:Windows home server vs Server 2008 R2

Server 2008 R2 is a more fully functional product. You will be able to do similar things, but it might be a little more involved getting it set up and working. Plus, if you are interested in IT, you could use the Server 2008 R2 experience....but you won't get hired for your knowledge on Windows Home Server.

My vote is Server 2008 R2 without a doubt.

I have a file server at home with a Quad core, 4gb ram, and a 3tb of storage. It is running Ubuntu Desktop and sharing video files primarily. From my school I have access to a free copy of Windows Server 2008 R2. Other than the server I have 2 Windows 7 desktops, 1 Windows 7 laptop and 1 Windows Vista laptop.

I am interested in moving to a Windows setup as I am done with the ?Ubuntu? experiment. WHS looks like what I need, but I have a free copy of WS 2008 and I would miss the $50 for WHS. My goals can be described best as:

Need to Haves:
? File/media server (local network)
? Dedicated game server for various games for friends.
? Print server

Nice to Haves:
? Music/Video Streaming over the internet
? Automatic backup server
? File server over the internet
? Ability to manager other PC?s from the server

My ability as an admin:
? No experience
? Willing to learn and put forth initial effort to get setup
? Don?t have time to really spend more than 1 day moving from Ubuntu to the new setup.
? Don?t want to be stuck constantly screwing with things to get it right or keep it running.

What is going to be best option for my situation?

A:Help choose: Windows Home Server 2011 vs. Windows Server 2008 R2

Honestly, I use both in their proper settings, and unless you have a domain at home with multiple users, Windows Server 2008 R2 is overkill...and would require much more tweaking and add-in apps to do what you want. Given your write-up, WHS 2011 is the way to go. It does much of what you want out of the box, and is designed for people who don't want to become server admins (or at least not be forced to).

I have a question about Mysql server 2008 R2

What is my server name if I select to install with "Named Instance" not "Default Instance"

with Mixed mode password

I don't know this because I used to install with Named Instance : neneka and mixed mode password 12345

but I can't login because I don't know what my server name is

user id should be : neneka right ? and maybe password is 12345

A:Question about installing Mysql server 2008 R2

When using named instances, the server name is of the form [ComputerName]\[InstanceName]
When using the default instance, it's only [ComputerName]

You can alternatively replace the computer name with the IP or "localhost" if it's on the very same box. And on the login dialog, if you open the server name combobox, the option "browse for more" can be used to help you locate the servers in the network too.
Also verify if the server service is running. For named instances to connect over a network, you also need the SQL Browser service running (not needed for the default instance).

BTW, you should rename the post to SQL Server, as it has nothing to do with MySql.

Not sure what opinions you want. All I can say is that you don't need server 2008 R2 to complete your desired tasks. Any basic Windows client OS should work.

EDIT: It should be noted that Windows Server OS's are enterprise standards therefore a lot of home license applications will not install unless it is open source. You will need to purchase enterprise licenses of software for them to be installed on the server. This is particularly important with Anti-Virus solutions.

i want to know difference between win server 2008 and win7 that oly i want to know

A:windows server 2008 rc

There are lots of differences. One is a client (win7) and 1 is designed to be a server (2008). The server offers various basic network services such as DHCP, DNS, WINS, VPN, Active Directory, Certificate Services, IIS Web Server, FTP Server, etc. Server 2008 is far more expensive to buy licenses for.

Can I install Windows server 2008 R2 on my external hard drive so that I can use it as means to practice network on my laptop?

A:Windows Server 2008 R2

Windows switches from the bios usb drivers to it's
own during boot,which would cause a usb drive
installation to crash.
I would suggest you consider using some virtual machine
software so you can run it from an image on your windows drive.

I decided to install windows server 2008 onto a virtual machine and play around with it and try to learn.
I've messed around with lots of stuff on it. The two things I would like to get working are FTP and VPN into the server. I've sort of managed to get ftp working. I can access it using the private ip address of, but when I try to access it with my public IP this is where the problem starts. Port forwarding is set correctly on my wireless router, port 21 is being forward to So when I go type ftp://publicipaddress into my web browser it pops up asking for the username and password. This is where I?m stuck. I have no idea what it is, I?ve messed with lots of the settings and whatever I do it still asks for this username and password, even though if I access the ftp server through my LAN using the private IP address it doesn?t ask for a username or password, it's only when using the public ip that it asks. Anyone got any idea's how I set the username and password to something I actually know?

I would like to be able to VPN into the server. I did follow a guide, but it didn?t work when my friend tested. Could someone point me to a nice guide on how to achieve this?
I'm more interested in getting the ftp to work for now.

Thanks all!

A:FTP and VPN into Windows Server 2008

the Virtual server is run under a specific user-id; I think you need that id and password

<ctl><alt>del will get the task manager and the column name User Name is what you need.

scroll to the process controlling the VM

you may need to alter the settings for the VM to force it to run under another
specific user which you can set the pwd
create new account
set new password for it
login to that account to create the %profile% area​then assign the VM to run under that login

Actually this Forum is fine -- I've been using it too. There's a special section as well on the R2 beta of Windows server 2008.

Is Windows Server 2008 Std/Ent MAK B or
Windows Server 2008 Std/Ent KMS B considered an Enterprise version? If not what is the Std/Ent from the
License Details website?
We are trying to get over 4GB of Ram and hopefully not having to purchase a 64-bit '08 version.
Thanks in advance

A:Windows Server 2008 Std/Ent MAK B

Hello Glueck,
The Std/Ent means those keys work for either Standard\Enterprise, they also work on either 32-bit or 64-bit versions, both of which should be available from the Volume License website.  The MAK B key is probably the one you want to use, the KMS
B is used to setup a KMS host machine that will then activate other Windows Server 2008 KMS clients Enterprise sku or lower as well as Windows Vista KMS clients.Thanks, Darrell Gorter This posting is provided "AS IS" with no warranties, and confers no rights.

Hello Guys,

This is a great forum and I'm really glad to be a part of it. So far, I've just been just reading posts but never really posted but I thought it's time I did since I need some guidance.

I'm a Technical Analyst so I'm pretty technical. However, I've never worked with Windows Server 2008. In other words, I have done my MCSE and know how to work around Windows Server 2003.

I might sound dumb but I have to ask this question. I'm running Windows 7 Build 7100 RC x64 as my main OS. I have a powerful laptop so I'm not worried about the requirements. I also have tons of important data on this laptop so it's important that I do not erase any data while installing Server 2008.

My question to you guys is -

How do I install Windows Server 2008?

1) Dual Boot (i.e. Create a partition and install it on that)

2) Virtualize (Install Vmware Server or use Microsoft Virtual PC)

The reason why I want to install Windows Server 2008 is because I want to test it out, play around with it and learn more as I plan to be a Network Administrator so this is my first time pretty much building or installing a server.

On the other hand, I downloaded VMware Server but unfortunately, I'm unable to install it as I keep getting the following error.

- Setup cannot continue. The Microsoft runtime DLL installer failed to complete installation.
Please advise.

Thanks in advance.

A:Windows Server 2008 Installation

My preference with multi-booting any OSs is to only install one OS per harddrive, with all other harddrives disconnected during the installation. This permits using the F8 boot menu as a means of selecting the OS to boot to. I have tried a number of boot loader programs, and every one of them caused problems, and when a boot loader goes wrong, it can effect all OSs, not just one.

I have heard alot of people that were happy with VMWare, and it may be just fine...I don't know, because I have never used it. The only way that I might, is if I had insufficient harddrives to handle the load.

I have installed Windows Server 2008 on one of my hard drives. It works and feels awesome. However there is one issue that I cannot resolve.

I have two PC's in my home that share the same internet connection. When running XP Pro both computers are able to access the internet with no problems however when I switch to the Windows Server 2008 on the host computer the PC that is running XP Pro can not access the internet.

The problem is when I look at the NICs the one for the other PC says "Network Cable is Unplugged" but it's not. Like I stated before it works fine if I reboot and use Windows XP.

Is there some setting within server 2008 that I need to change to correct this? The NIC card in question is using NVIDIA nForce Networking Controller and the drivers that Windows server has assigned.

Someone with some knowledge please help
