Windows Home Server Computer Restore CD

Background

My neighbor asked me to upgrade the hard drive in his PC this weekend. I immediately connected it to my network and installed the Windows Home Server Connector. Once I completed the backup I realized that I had lost my Restore CD. The CD was packed up in some box somewhere and it was too hot to look for it. What’s a boy to do?

Well download and burn another one of course!

This computer was so ugly…how ugly was she? I had four beers and I still did not want to bring her home.

Yes, this was the same model featured in Miami Vice.

Mental Note: Even if I had found the disc it was probably not up to date for the latest WHS PowerPack.

Equipment Needed

  • Internet connection
  • Blank CD and burning software
  • One beer (Optional as always)
