Server 2012 Essenitals Installation Media

Server 2012 Essenitals Installation Media

I wanted to get the install media for Server 2012 Essentials in case my customer can't come up with it in an emergency. On this page, I see Server 2012 R2 Essentials, but NOT the non-R2 edition.


Any ideas on how to get the proper ISO?

RE: Server 2012 Essenitals Installation Media

So................. I found it myself. Someone with a Visual Studio subscription, where the file is still downloadable, told me the exact file name. From the full file name, I was able to find and download it from a shady download site. I got the SHA1 hash value of the legitimate file from heidoc.net and it matches the one I calculated from the file I downloaded. So, I can conclude that I got an unadulterated ISO file - shady source or not.

Now I can test disaster recovery for my customer who can't be bothered with such small worries.
