I have a small rackmount PC whose motherboard has a compact flash card built-in (I believe it's an IDE device). The computer was originally used as a firewall running pfsense, but I would like to repurpose it as a general-purpose low-power server.
Windows Server didn't seem to want to install directly on a compact flash drive, so I tried installing windows onto a SATA drive and then copying the partition, but when I booted I got a "your installation of Windows has changed and needs to be repaired". My Windows Server install CD doesn't seem to have any meaningful repair options the way the consumer Windows install disks do.
Any advice? I'm using the "standard" version of Windows Server 2012 R2... online I see references to an embedded version but I have no idea where to find it or how to install it.
