Windows Server 2012 Essentials R2 on Home Server Show 228

On this episode of the Home Server Show we are going to install (or try) Windows Server 2012 Essentials R2 on my HP N54L. During the install we will be looking at Jim Collison’s install screens and going over what’s new, Virtual Machines, and a whole lot more.  We also go over Windows 8.1 and a little bit on RT.  Enjoy.

Don’t forget the YouTube for this one.  There are a lot of screens to see so the video might be better than the audio!
