Has anyone successfully installed Windows 8.1 on a S2600GL board? Wondering if I should buy it or not and not sure I want to unless I can get 8.1 running on it. Thanks

Hello,

 

 

Thank you for contacting Intel Customer Support.

 

 

I would like to share the http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/boards-and-kits/000006983.html Operating System Compatibility for Intel® Server Board S2600GL/GZ, Windows 8.1 is not a validated operating system for you server board.

I'm not looking for "supported" or "validated"...I'm looking for if someone has installed it and had it run in a stable condition

Hi,

8.1 and Windows Server 2012R2 use the same kernel. Try installing latest chipset drivers and other ones per 2012R2
