    Is UDOO x86 (I'm thinking higher end versions) compatible with Windows Server 2016 Standard? I was wondering if I could setup a nice home server on it.

    From Windows Server requirements it needs:
    CPU:
    • 1.4 GHz 64-bit processor
    • Compatible with x64 instruction set
    • Supports NX and DEP
    • Supports CMPXCHG16b, LAHF/SAHF, and PrefetchW
    • Supports Second Level Address Translation (EPT or NPT)
    RAM:
    • 1 GB
    "Computers that run Windows Server 2016 must include a storage adapter that is compliant with the PCI Express architecture specification."
    Minimal size: 32GB

    Looking through the specifications of the Intel N3160 (SoC) used on the UDOO X86 ADVANCED, it seems to support the features you've listed, apart from DEP is not mentioned, however, I think that's covered by SMEP (Supervisor Mode Execution Protection), but I'm not 100% sure.

    Majority of the features are listed on this page: http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Celeron/Intel-Mobile Celeron N3160.html
    The EPT is listed on: http://ark.intel.com/products/91831/Intel-Celeron-Processor-N3160-2M-Cache-up-to-2_24-GHz

    If you require further clarification, please send me a PM in a few weeks, because I will then have a board that I can run Microsoft's Coreinfo on - https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/cc835722.aspx

    I'm pretty sure that DEP = Execute Disable Bit which is there. I wonder if UDOO team have tested this Windows though

    @Michal Golunski actually we've never tested it, so apart from speculative considerations I cannot help you.
