Has anyone sucessfully installed Windows 8.1 on a S2600GL board?

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

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
