    It should. You exceed the minimum requirements of:
    Processor: 1GHz (x86) - Minimum, 2GHz - Recommended

    Memory: 512mb - Minimum, 2gb - Recommended, 32gb - Maximum

    Hard drive: 10gb - Minimum, 40gb or more - Recommended

    I read the min sys requirements, but the download page shows a 64-bit download. That's why I wasn't sure if it would work on my old Thinkpad.

    R2 only comes in 64 bit. Although you have a 32bit OS on your laptop now the hardware is 64.

    Just out of curiosity, whats the reason for installing a server OS on your laptop?

    I'm thinking of getting my IT certfications, so I need to run through the process of setting up the server, configuring it, etc..
