Install MS CRM 2011 Beta on Windows 2008 SP2 or Windows 2008 R2?

I think everybody is consfuse when choosing the Operating System. So here are the facts:

1. You can choose either Windows 2008 SP2 or Windows 2008 R2.

2. But When usingWindows 2008 R2 you need to consider especially this one:
    Import organization fails with Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 organization database when running on Windows Server 2008 R2.

To work around this issue, install Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 Server on a computer that is running the original release of Windows Server 2008, and then try the import organization operation again.

Many users has imported 4.0-organizations to 2011 with no errors.

So I don't think we can generalize the problem and say that ALL R2 will fail.

Can you describe the error message in detail? I want to try CRM Beta 2011 on our Server 2008 R2 and will check this for our companies CRM 4 installation (bring it from CRM4 to CRM 2011 beta)
