Hi,
The R710 is compatible with Windows 2008 R2

Here is a link to where supported Dell Server and Storage information Windows Server 2008 R2

I don't believe Dell has 2008 R2 drivers yet for any servers. Some of the 2008 drivers might work, but there are some that may need an update before it'll work.

 

I'd expect Dell to come with 2008 R2 drivers when it's closer to the release date (October 22nd).

Thanks a lot.

It seems all is ready. Maybe I should be carefull with TOE.

By the other hand I haven't found info about the compatilibity of MD1000 but since is connected to PERC 6/E I suppose we won't have problems with that.

Best Regards.
