Some sort of experiment ?
Drivers are available everywhere, they're the same as the Win7 ones. Remember that all Windows editions are exactly the same with just artificial limitations on the installed features (effectively, for example, Win7 Starter and Win2008R2 Datacenter are in fact the very same program). Hence the drivers are the same, the programs run or fail to run in the same way and behavior is the same, the main difference being the default configuration in some areas, that can be tweaked in both cases.

I've done that experiment some years ago and found all those facts "the hard way"

The question is interesting though, why the server? It's just more expensive and many times the extra features don't merit the cost or can be replaced by better free software alternatives.

I`m sorry but Server and Enterprise are not the same as the other versions.

I would suggest you do your experimenting on your computer not the company computer.
Doing such a thing on a company is a good way of loosing your job.

Yes, this is a company laptop. It's a Toshiba A11-11H - so single HDD.

Even better, experiment on a virtual machine. Any problems there will die there without need to reformat anything in any computer currently in use.

I humbly apologize to Alejandro85, it seems you can install the latest nVidia drivers for a 660 on Server 2012 R2, someone else would have to chime in on Server 2008 R2.

I don't care what one is installing on a company computer without the companies permission; it called hacking a companies computer. Virtual machine or other wise. As far as I know it is still covered by the forum rule # 6.

Please read.

Even though the computer may be owned by the company, nothing here indicates hacking at least. He could have permission or maybe the company is precisely about this music software, who knows, the OP didn't said after all. The virtual machine don't constitute hacking I think, it won't break the machine.
Having licences for that Windows installs is a diffent history.

Anyway, this discussion won't help the OP at all.

@AddRAM, don't worry, no offense taken

Due to the uncertain nature of this thread I believe that it should be closed.

Any modifications to a company laptop should only be performed via the relevant company department
