The only legitimate source of such a download is from TechNet or a similar Microsoft subscription based service

I meant not the URL of technet but rather of the downloadable ISO file.

Technet is not a valid source.

Windows Storage Server is an OEM product that is sold by OEMs - HP in your case.  There is no legal place to download media unless HP makes it available.  Bottom line - you need to contact HP.  If they don't have it... not sure you have any option other than to buy a used device from ebay to obtain media.

Just to clarify the above - Windows Storage Server IS available on TechNet (you need to have a valid TechNet subscription). Of course - TechNet products are licenced only for education/training and development purposes and you cannot legally use a TechNet product in a production environment.
