Upgrade from Server 2008 x64 to Windows 7 x64

Upgrade from Server 2008 x64 to Windows 7 x64

Is it possible to "upgrade" from Windows Server 2008 x64 to Windows 7 x64? If so, what are the gotchas? Any links to instructions on how to do this?

"As far as I know, moving from server-grade OS to a consumer-grade OS has never been possible in the Windows family of OSes. There is no ""Windows 7 Server"", but there is Windows Server 2008 R2, which would seem the logical upgrade path from Windows Server 2008. If you're just using your Server 2008 system as a workstation, and you want to move to Windows 7, then I'd say be prepared for a fresh install.

If you need a second opinion, MS also has the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor available."
