    Unanswered: Can I do this??

    I've got 2008 SBS prem running as the DC and the SQL server. I'd like to move the SQL role off the SBS 2008 Server and onto a Windows 7 Pro computer running 16Gb of RAM to act as the SQL Server.

    1) can I install the SQL2008 that comes with SBS 2008 Prem on a windows 7 PC?
    2) how does the licensing work? Do I first have to uninstall SQL from the 2008 SBS server before installing it onto the windows 7 PC ?

    From a license perspective: No you can't. Thus it is irrelevant to me whether it is technically possible or not.
