Can I download Media for Server 2003

I need to reinstall a server, and I want to use Server 2003 R2. My media is damaged.

Does microsoft provide a location to Download ISO images of there genuine media?

I have found different locations that i can download media, but I can't verify if it is genuine microsoft media. and some of them have slipstreamed servicepacks and the like.

I just want the genuine microsoft version.

If someone can provide a link to the microsoft location I would be grateful.

Thank you

I think your best bet is to contact your local Microsoft branch and ask them if it is possible to have a replacement CD sent to you if you send in the damaged medium.

Yes, but I'm not going to be able to get it today, and I really wanted to get this server installed today.

I'll leave the question open, maybe someone has another idea

I wish you best luck on this endeavour.

As far as I know the only OS isos that Microsoft offer for download are betas and 60-day trials.
And if yoiu check the download categories on their download page (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/default.aspx) for "Windows Media" then they only contain media player related stuff.

This is what makes them really special: the way they treat their paying customers. If your server were running on Debian, CentOS or OpenSuse, you would have faster and easier downloaded a new iso than asking a question here.

Looks like I'll contact Microsoft and go through the channels to get replacement media. Thanks.
