  • Hi Pellis26,


    Windows Server 2008 and any version of SharePoint are two separate server program. Their installation are independent. Here is an article which is about SharePoint Versions and Editions: http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/SPCON/Comparing+SharePoint+Versions+and+Editions, you can know which version is you need after reading this.


    Thanks & Regards,
