  1. Re: Any info/ advice on the possibility of x86 Windows Server 2012?

    No, you shouldn't need to re-install. Look for the option in the BIOS for memory remap or memory hole.
  2. Re: Any info/ advice on the possibility of x86 Windows Server 2012?

    We'll see. Sometimes the screens for Asus are slightly different dimensions. It depends upon how it actually mounts whether it will work or not.

    Maybe. You should take the old screen off and get the make and model off the back. This will make it much easier to cross reference what will work. Also, take a picture of the back so we can make...

    No, I was saying contact the seller of that screen to ask for the one you want. I think you may have trouble finding IPS, but these people will know.

    It should work. At the very worst, you don't get an increase in resolution. But unless Dell hard coded something into the BIOS to limit the resolution (stranger things have happened!), you should...
