    I am really enjoying Windows Server 2008 on my Late 2007 iMac but there is a major hurdle preventing me from truly embracing it.

    I cannot get the Bootcamp installation to go perfectly. I attempt to load the drivers from CD but the installer encounters errors when trying to start services (KeyAgent, etc)

    After rebooting I attempted to launch the x64 Bootcamp 2.1 update for Windows Vista with no success.

    Anyone have advice?

    I honestly have no idea, since I haven't done anything with the server version... BUT!

    From the Apple Updater, can you choose to download the file only? Or just download the file from the Apple website, then right click on the file and run it as an administrator?

    Does Server 2008 have a "compatibility mode" like Vista and XP? Can you choose to run it in compatibility mode for Vista, or for Server 2003?
