    Hope this reply is quick enough.  But you need to realize that this is not an official support forum with any sort of guaranteed response time.  The people who contribute to these forums are volunteers having jobs very similar to yours.  It is not a Microsoft corporate support method.

    That said, .NET 3.5 framework is different from all the other features for Windows Server 2012 R2.  Its components are not installed by default.  So during the installation, you will see there is an option to enter a source for the distribution.

    Mount the same distribution media you uses to install the operating system and specify the \sources directory and it should install.

    Also, if you do a quick search of this forum, you will find many other posts of people who ran into the same issue.  The process can find the sources across the network or from your media.  You specify a location interactively with the GUI or with PowerShell or DISM.  Some people have had issues with this, so there are lots of posts about different issues.  If you continue to run into issues, you should check existing posts.  If you still can't get it to work, by all means come back here, but since this has been hashed over many times, your situation would need to be pretty unique to have not been answered earlier.

  • Hi AliSyed24,

    Tim has answered your issue.

    In addition, DISM path:<path_to_ISO>\sources\sxs

    Powershell specify path: Install-WindowsFeature Net-Framework-Core -source \\network\share\sxs

    GUI path: just as Tim's figure.
