Is headless support provided?

Discussion in 'Windows 64bit' started by =?Utf-8?B?U3VzYW5uZSBTdMO2aHI=?=, Oct 24, 2006.

  1. Could somone please tell me whether the 64-bit XP already supports headless
    operating? Or will only server editions of 64-bit Windows provide support for
    headless operating as indicated in the article 'Designing for 64-bit Windows'
    at www.microsoft.com?

    Specifically, I am interested whether I can remove the video controller. Our
    BIOS will support use without the video card present.

    Regards,
    Susanne

  2. I honestly don't know, but I would not expect it to work in XP. Given that
    XP is not supposed to be a server operating system, the case for headless is
    not terribly compelling. But, given that XP x64 is based on Server 2k3 SP1
    code, you might get lucky. But I doubt it would be considered a supported
    scenario.

  3. Hello,
    It should work as far as I know. I think the same code for running
    headless exists on both client and server.
    For example embedded Windows XP would have to support running headless.
    We are just talking running headless right or are we also asking about
    running EMS?
    Thanks,
    Darrell Gorter[MSFT]

  4. Thank you for answering. Headless support is supported in the current Windows
    XP Professional - so I just hope that the support continues. If someone has
    got some information you are welcome to post it!

  5. Hello,

    it is true that Windows XP embedded supports running headless. And I am just
    talking about running headless and not about running EMS. We have to know for
    sure now as the current hardware design depends on this information.

    Greetings

  6. Hello Susanne,
    I checked to just to make sure. Yes if the hardware supports it, Windows
    XP x64 edition supports running headless
