    Ryzen 2008 R2 ?

    Maybe I missed it, I cannot seem to locate any definitive info if server 2008 R2 Standard is supported with the new Ryzen CPUs. I know it is similar code to 7, but i think end of life is like 2020. If not are there any work arounds? Any info or links would be appreciated.

    Considering Microsoft is preventing Ryzen from supporting Win7 & 8, it would seem likely that server 2008 is not to be supported either.

    I believe this does not mean that Win 7 & 8 won't install on a Ryzen computer, but that updates won't be available. As to workarounds, check out this article - it's not specific to server 2008 but it might help.

    It would never be supported i guess because like btdog said. The only work around is using patch which is not too specific for 2008.
