Windows Server 2012 R2 on DN2820FYKH

Has anyone had success running Windows Server 2012 R2 on the DN2820FYKH? This kit strikes me as a great low-power, low-cost development server. I've read about the issues running headless and from what I can see there are various workarounds available these days (update the BIOS / don't install the Intel VGA driver / avoid plugging and unplugging monitors). The big concern is potential show-stopping driver compatibility issues, in particular the wired ethernet driver. Can anyone advise?

Thanks. The short answer is the ethernet driver does work with a few hacks. I may be investing in this kit soon.
