O yeah I saw that, what was the down side to that again sorry?

BTW, what RAM does your server take, I bet we have a stack load at college I could send over.. we have tonnes of server RAM.

The downside was that you had to install twice. But it was better than doing a standard upgrade because you forfeit your XP key when you do that. I can confirm that it definately works aswell because i done it on the laptop last night.

As for the RAM, il have to check and get back to you. Much appreciated tho.
