  • Sorry, but that's the only official way to get the media. Microsoft hasn't the media available online, except for MSDN subscribers.

    You might want to ask your system vendor, friends, an user group or similar, if someone has the media and can give you a copy, or you can order it from Microsoft from the link above.

  • Hi, Dave. Sorry but that wasn't quite helpful. I don't have a lot of cash as Iam a college student living with my parents and I have disabilities. So A. I don't own or work for a company (unless you consider a bunch of college buddies running a SC2 Lan party with our computers and my rackmount game server) and B. i HAVE a key i NEED a .ISO of home server 2011.
