Hey everyone, I have a bit of an issue and thought I'd bring it here. The users on this site have been amongst the most knowledgeable I've seen on the net. So anyhow, I have this laptop with a broken screen running Windows Vista and I plan on wiping it clean and installing Windows Server 2008 to use as a media center PC in the bedroom. When logged on to Vista, I can use the function keys to pull up the external, however, I am unable to do the same during Server install. How can I remedy this issue?

I put this in the Windows 7 forum due to the similarities between 7 and Server 2008, the fact that it is not really a "server issue" I am having, and that this forum is more utilized. If this is unacceptable I will move or delete the topic. Thanks for your help.

Update: I disabled the display drivers on the laptop through Vista, but it does not take effect until Vista has booted. Trying to run the install again left me with images displayed only on the broken screen
