what's the specific error? "Won't Work" could mean you are just typing it wrong?
I can't see any big reason why EEPC5 would not work fine on W2008 server, but we don't test on server platforms, and don't support the kind of disk systems they typically have.
I guess we did test on server platforms then ;-)
I stand corrected!
After changing the users default password, I am able to pass PBA. Next the screen goes blank with a message:
Starting Operating System...
It never boots to the OS
that's either an original MBR issue, or a platform hardware problem. You could try doing fixmbr prior to activation to make sure there's a proper MBR there, but more likely it's a hardware issue. Try the current version of EEPC, update the bios to the latest version etc.
