Hello Phil,
Since I am new to all of this, how exactly would I go about installing windows on another server? I'm visually impaired - does remote desktop default to having sound or is there an option to enable this during the installation? Or can I change certain settings through the online 'control panel'?
Also, the particular server I am looking at, the E3-SAT-3, will the 2 2tb drives be in one partition while giving the operating system a fraction of it? Or how does that work?
Thanks for any and all help.

But nothing yet for the OVH/SYS brands.
Aha, wasn't sure on that. Hopefully they come up with something - too bad you can't preorder, although I guess it would take a while to be filled.
Still confused on windows installation though. Hmm.

Under the BK-24T server, it says that there is no windows server available. Is there any particular reason for this or is there something I am missing?
Also, is there a way I can be informed when one of these servers are back in stock? As the Canadian soyoustart site has absolutely 0 servers in stock, or so it seems.
