I have currently provisioned a workstation desktop as a server. I run Windows Server 2012 for running a few of my web apps and doing database work. While I have no complaints on Windows Server 2012, I miss the desktop features like audio, using high resolution graphics and sleep (WOL) for saving energy when the system is idle.
Can I switch to windows 8? When I tried this, there appears to be no way but a complete reinstall. Is there a way to keep my programs and data and just move the OS from Windows Server 2012 to Windows 8?
