Getting Blue Screen on Dell laptop with Win Server 2008 R2

I talked to a Dell rep yesterday and was telling him that my new Dell laptop (in my case an E6510) allowed me to load Windows Server 2008 R2 but I kept getting the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) every so often. He said it was the drivers for the chipset and that I should just upgrade them to the latest. He also said the Win 7 drivers for other components work fine because the two operating systems share a common code base. If you are installing Win Server just have the drivers, particularly the ones for the network adapters, handy on a flash drive, extra partition or CD when you do the server install.

I am upgrading my windows server 2003 r2, service pack 2 standard edition to 2008 r2 standard and I received this message;


This is informational: Upgrade is done within Windows, though it will reboot. Booting with installation disc is a clean install. Both look very similar.

Make sure to backup data just in case. Good Luck
