      I have an now redundant server - using Intel 5000V Northbridge chipset on Supermicro X7DVL-E LGA771 server M/Board which was used for MS2003/ Windows home server software. I would like to maximize life as it has not been heavily loaded. I know it can run MS2008 but would like to use this with say Win7 or Win8. I read somewhere that the chipset on the motherboard is the critical thing to update to address this - is it possible?

      If it is possible, Any clues to help would be great.

       

      Thanks
