Hi, I've been lurking on MDL for ages, finally decided to make an account. I hope I've posted this in the right thread. If I've made a mistake, my apologies. Okay, here's my setup: --160 GB HDD connected to first SATA port --500 GB HDD connected to second SATA port First, I had XP Professional installed on the 160, then I installed 7 Ultimate x64 on the 500, then I decided to switch to 7 and I formatted and deleted the XP partition on the 160, which now consists solely of Free Space. On 7, I use Daz' loader (which works great, successfully, and always without a hitch). I'm running an Intel motherboard, DG31PR, so I'm uncertain if a BIOS mod is possible, but I'd like to avoid it if I can. Seeing as Intel wasn't in the SLIC list (not to my knowledge, anyway) I just picked an Alienware SLIC, Certificate, and Serial. All default options, loader version 1.9. Now, what I want to do is install Server 2008 R2 onto the 160 GB HDD. I'm aware Daz' loader can activate it with a Dell certificate and serial, but here's what I'm curious about: Do I just install Server 2008 R2 onto the 160 and use Daz' loader on it? Will it affect my current boot setup? Do I need to run any special options? Will I be able to boot into 7 normally, and will it retain genuine status? Do I need to rerun Daz' loader on that and configure it with Dell SLIC, certificate and serial instead? Thanks for the help!
