Trying to Install 2012 R2 Trial on new Thinkserver RRS feed

  • Question

  • I downloaded the ISO for Server 2012 R2 Trial onto a bootable DVD. I have a new, baremetal Thinkserver I purchased specifically for this. At about the second step in the installation it stops with "can not find the Microsoft Software License Terms. Make sure the installation sources are valid and restart".

    Is there a way to get this going?

    Thanks in advance for any input.

  • Hi,

    Did you selectExpress Installation in the setup wizard?

    Based on my research, it may cause this kind of issues. Please uncheck it to see if the issue persists..

    In addition, it may because the Express/Easy Install feature of VMware fusion does not work with the most recent version of Windows yet. You can try to boot from the ISO, it may work fine.

    Best regards,
