Hi guys

HP ML110 G6. OEM SBS2008 COA . System re-install/reload.
HP "Easy Install CD" only (HP didnt include bare SBS install CD)
I dont have MS SBS2008 ISO/Disk or I would just use that

So i install SBS2008 via the HP CD, SBS2008 is the only option at the install menu.
At the end of the install I finds its installed "Windows Server Standard FE" instead .
I tried the install twice, 2nd time taking photos just as some proof that install claimed to be SBS

Anyone come across this before?
Any ideas whats going on (aprt from a HP stuff-up with install CD's they didnt test)
If I stay with 2008FE, would that be a equivalent of SBS2008 ?

This rings a bell for me but I only did 2 or 3 SBS2008 installs. Is there a desktop icon to continue the installation of the SBS components like Exchange?

The (SBS)console shows it as SBS2008 ,system properties shows it as Standard FE.
So I guess/hope its just some weird OEM naming thing ?

Exchange is there & Active Directory.
I guess I'll just carry on & see how it plays out.

Yeah it is because it is an OEM version, so the sticker is on the iron (FE) case laughing
