These release notes address late-breaking issues and information about the Windows Server® 2008 operating system. Unless otherwise specified, these notes apply to all editions of Windows Server 2008.

Hyper-V™ is available in Windows Server 2008. To install this role, the computer must meet specific hardware and software requirements. For more information about configuration, usage considerations, and known issues, see the release notes for Hyper-V (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=98821).
For links to other information, see the role page on the Windows Server 2008 TechCenter (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=48557).
Windows Server 2008 no longer includes drivers for the Intel 10/100 family of devices.
You can obtain the appropriate driver from the manufacturer, from Intel, or in some cases with Microsoft Update.
This issue affects Windows Server 2008 Standard, Windows Server 2008 Enterprise, Windows Server 2008 Datacenter, and Windows Web Server 2008.
After you install Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows® Media Services on a computer running Windows Vista Ultimate, Windows Vista Enterprise, or Windows Vista Business, the Windows Media Services snap-in in Windows Vista may not be able to access a remote server running the Streaming Media Services role in Windows Server 2008. You might receive error codes 0x80070005, 0x800706BA, or both.
To correct this, create access permissions for Remote Server Administration Tools and enable an exception for Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) in Windows Firewall on the server.
Although the default behavior for Windows Server 2008 is that Windows Firewall is turned on, if you install Windows Server 2008 on a computer running Windows Server 2003 that had Windows Firewall turned off, the firewall will remain off after the installation unless you turn it on using the Windows Firewall control panel.
These issues only affect Windows Server 2008 Datacenter, Windows Server 2008 Enterprise, and Windows Server 2008 Standard.
