Where can I get a 32 bit download of Windows 2008 R2?
Posted on 2011-02-26
I am replacing a Windows 2003 server with Windows 2008.
Very frustrating situation.
First, the Windows 2003 is a 32 bit server. I know I need to run adprep /forestprep on it to get it ready. The Windows 2008 is a 64 bit machine.
I tried using a Windows 2008 32 bit disc to run the command - however, it didn't work out.
I googled what my problem was (I had to run schupgr.exe, and found out that I got back a 44 instead of 47) which meant I needed to do adprep from an R2 disc and not just the regular 2008 disc.
Now my problem is that I don't know where to find a 32 bit demo of Windows 2008 R2.
I just need to run 2 commands and it's driving me nuts.
Microsoft seems to have pulled it from their site.
Any help would be most appreciated.
