    How to convert (enable aero, sound, wireless, auto log on, disable shutdown event tracker, etc) Windows Server 2008 R2, including this build, to a more workstation OS (user friendly) follow the instructions at www_win2008r2workstation_com
    For me works everything except for bluetooth.
    Enjoy!

    Oh... and to enable blur chnage/create the HideBlur key to 0 in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\DWM or make a .reg file containing this:

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\DWM]
    "HideBlur"=dword:00000000
