Vista SP1 Drivers ok for Server 2008?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I have laying around an "el cheapo" PC (bought from a supermarket) which I plan on repurposing as an asset server for all my photography assets and textures etc.

The problem is that the motherboard is based on a low end consumer chipset (Nvidia MCP73), and I can only seem to find chipset/LAN/graphics drivers for Vista or Vista SP1.

As they are based on the same kernel, will Vista SP1 drivers work with Server 2008?

Thanks,

Martin

Server 2008 and Vista SP1 are the exact same code tree, so drivers designed for one will work for the other in almost all circumstances.

Am running server 2008 as workstation (SP2). All my vista drivers works just perfect on server 2008. I never had any problems with drivers under server at all.

As cluberti mentioned, vista and server are the exact same code tree (same driver model)
