Windows Server 2008 configuration

You may want to disable auto-start of both Initial Configuration and Server manager for some time, and then - to reapply them again. The first one is extremely useful in case of desktop system env.

Open registry at HKLM\Software\Microsoft\ServerManager and change the value of DoNotOpenServerManagerAtLogon key from 0 to 1.

To enable Initial configuration, run oobe.
