Does anyone know a link to a download for Windows Server 2008 R2 Datacenter SP1 (64) iso download.  I have my MSDN developers key but can't find the download on any MS sites anymore.

I do not believe the "evaluation" copies can be upgraded to full version just by using a valid key.  A full install is required.  See this link, and there are many others.

I am looking for a full version iso download.   But thanks anyway.  If you think otherwise, maybe you can point to some documentation.

I have upgraded eval copies in the past and never had an issue.

Can you not download it from https://licensing.microsoft.com/customer ?

Is it missing from the MSDN site?  I only have access to the standard downloads and Technet

It is on the MS Partner Network download site, but my Action Pack subscription does not have access to that particular DL even though that is how I obtained it, and the Key, in the first place.  I have escalated that issue with MS Partner Network support, but it will take a few days.  In the interim, I have found some sites, like BitSnoop.com that appears to have that, and many others, but not sure if I trust them.  I think I am as set as can be.  Thanks anyway.

I suppose I could just boot to DOS off the 2012 OS disc, do my flashes, and not do any updating of OS?
