Hi,  Does anyone know where I can download an evaluation copy of windows 2008 32bit SBS?

When i found sites and tried to download, the sites have either started to download and showed errors or saying nothing to download!!!

How long can is the evaluation period to learn and install and configure it?

Sorry, here is my full post:


There is no 32bit version of SBS2008, it's only available as 64bit.

You also cannot get the evaluation of it since SBS2011 is now available, see here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/evalcenter/gg492833

Just to add to the genius posts above ... if you are wondering, it is because of new 64-bit requirements with Exchange that SBS 2008 is 64-bit only.

no i did not see a previous post as just went straight to question.  i was sure there was a 32 bit version but realise there isn't and the extra info regarding Exchange being the reason for no 32bit is good to know.
