Background: I'm planning to install Windows Server 2008 x64 on a desktop class system that I'm building using a recent Intel mainboard. While it's not server-class hardware intended for production use, I develop web applications for a living and it's handy to have a non-virtual server O/S to develop/test against. (There are non-trivial differences from workstation-class OS's to server-class OS's. Recall, say, Windows XP's IIS 5.1 vs. Windows Server 2003's IIS 6.0 with app pools, etc.)
I'm confident Windows Server 2008 x64 will basically work on the box, but I'd also want it to be able to do other useful things like: MP3 jukebox, video player. (Consolidating functions will help keep the number of boxes in my lab to a minimum!) Therefore, I'm wondering if I can get sound and video working on the box. The Intel desktop board has current 64-bit drivers available for both Vista and Windows 7.
And so, the question: Can Vista x64 or Windows 7 x64 drivers be used for Windows 2008 x64, including the forthcoming R2 edition?
