    2008rc2 Sp1 Failure.

    Just a heads up really, I put sp1 on my test server took a good hour to install. When it rebooted

    Non-system disk or disk error
    Replace and strike any key when ready



    Doh!

    I've had to boot off from 2008rc2 dvd pressed shift f10 at the welcome/language screen.

    and run x:\sources\recovery\StartRep.exe which has brought it back to life...

    Bad luck Rob. Installed the SP1 RTM four times so far without problems.

    Worked ok on My Hyper-V servers.

    Not noticed any difference though since the install.

    Have they actually changed anything?

    Bloody hell yes.

    Dynamic RAM

    As a joke/test I've seen how far I could push it. How many 2008 R2 servers do you think that you could get running on a five year old desktop motherboard with 8GB RAM? Before SP1 perhaps 8 or 9 if you pushed it. Now - 47

    These are just "running" of course - they would be absolutely useless, but still. This is Full Server 2008 R2 Standard btw - not the core OS.

    Good times...

    OT: does anyone know when SP1 for System Centre Virtual Machine Manager to support SP1 for hyper-v will be available?

    SCVMM 2008 R2 seems to work fine with it. Is there something in particular that you'd like me to check?
