comment In-place upgrade of Windows Server 2008 (not R2) to 2012
It doesn't explicitly mention it, but I would imagine that it's not possible to upgrade from the 32-bit version of Server 2008.

comment How to find cause of IIS Timer_MinBytesPerSecond error?
The error is due to IIS receiving data at a slower rate than the lower threshold. Could there be something in the path that is buffering the requests from the client?

comment Can't select IUSR for running a service under
That strikes me as less secure than the default. Are you sure you want the WWW publishing service to run under a different context, or could you perhaps be needing to run an Application Pool under a different context (for connections to remote servers and so on)?

comment How can I view the SQL Server database created by an ASP.NET MVC web application?
Because when you fire up Management Studio and connect to .\SQLEXPRESS, you're looking at the machine instance. User instance DBs will not appear here.

comment Find and update all windows drivers silently from a network share
I'm not sure if it supports clients in the same way as it does servers, but look at Dell OpenManage Essentials.
