Installing SBS Standard?
June 11, 2011 3 Comments
Are you installing SBS Standard and wondering why you have the option of an upgrade or a custom install?
The WinPE environment for SBS Setup is based on the underlying Win2008R2 code (or for SBS 2008, just Server 2008), the full server products do have the functionality to upgrade enabled*, but for SBS this is DISABLED. So your only option is a custom install. Slightly confusing if you havent seen it before, but now you know.
