  • You can get it here assuming you have a retail key.

    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/evalcenter/evaluate-windows-server-2012-r2

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/get-started/installation-and-upgrade

    In the case of an OEM activation the distribution media must come from the OEM provider.

  • Hi,

    Microsoft Official website only provide the evaluation of Windows Server 2012 R2 Datacenter 64-bit ISO for download, in general, we can convert from evaluation to retail version using command line below with your own license:
    DISM /online /Set-Edition:<edition ID>/ProductKey:<your product license>/AcceptEula

    However, you had Standard version license key, and it is unable to do above operation, that means convert from Datacenter evaluation version to Standard retail version is not supported.

    In general, you can obtain installation medium(physical media or .iso file) from the license sealer/provider, may be you can contact them and ask for installation medium.

  • What is a person supposed to do if they have oem 2012r2, and want to create a Gen2 VM since we can have 2 vm's. Gen2 VM requires 2012R2 ISO file, but you cannot create a useable 2012R2 iso file from the DVD as windows sees the problem with it during VM installation.

    Your only choice is the eval download. but you cant use it because you are oem?
