Server 2008 R2 not compatible with nvidia drivers?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I just installed server 2008 R2 from dream spark since i'm still rockin 98 biggrin.gif on my rig and i get a message that i cant install nvidia drivers on server 2008 because it is "unsupported". There are many posts on here about people playing games on server 2008. What am i doing wrong?

EDIT: im also getting an error with Norton saying the same thing.

have you tried downloading and installing activeX first and then installing the Nvidia drivers?

They work, running R2 here (actually just re-installed for the Crysis 2 Beta... lol) and everything installed fine. Do you have 32bit/64bit, got the wrong ones?

[edit] Only a few AV supported, generally you need "hacks" to get them on.
