Windows Server 2012 NOT R2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to rebuild a failed server and I need Server 2012 NOT R2.  When I download it from our Microsoft site even though it says it's not R2 when I start the install it says R2.  I downloaded from the eval center.  Same thing, even though the title of the download says it's not R2 when I start in the install it says R2.  Where can I find a good download of Server 2012 that is NOT R2?

  • Hi,

    Thanks for posting in Microsoft TechNet Forum.

    First of all, there is really no error in the address you downloaded, it is an official Microsoft address.

    Try restarting your computer and downloading it again.

    Here is also a link to Windows Server 2012 ISO free download for reference only.
