In our latest [url=http://www.davescomputertips.com/newsletters/2011/june.php:1pfh79us]DCT newsletter[/url:1pfh79us] I've provided a detailed step-by-step [url=http://www.davescomputertips.com/newsletters/2011/june.php#article1:1pfh79us]installation guide for WHS 2011[/url:1pfh79us]. Have a read and discuss!

[b:1pfh79us]Windows Home Server 2011 Minimum Requirements[/b:1pfh79us]

1 - 1.4GHz 64-bit single core processor. A multi-core CPU will provide a better experience.
1 - 160GB hard drive(60GB for OS/100GB for storage). Multiple drives provide more storage and provide more backup options.
2 GB RAM. Will function with 2GB, but if you are considering media streaming 4GB should provide better results.
10/100Mbit Network Interface Card (NIC). Consider 1Gb if you have a gigabit network or plan one in the future.

[b:1pfh79us]Let the installation begin! Server 2008 first.[/b:1pfh79us]

WHS 2011 is like any recent Microsoft OS and can be installed from DVD or flash drive. As installation begins you are presented with common "Windows is loading files..." screen.
