The server is not R2 and I would like to use NIC Teaming for the pgysical server. There are no VMs at all. Neither is Hyper V or any virtualization turned on.

NIC teaming PRIOR to Windows Server 2012 was accomplished through the NIC vendor.  You generally needed matched NICs that supported NIC teaming and then likely a switch that did as well (though some implementation may be switch independent).

Put another way, WINDOWS ITSELF does not provide NIC teaming in 2008.

Yes, NIC teaming is possible.  It can depend on your NIC manufacturer.  Both Intel and Broadcom cards can be teamed using the driver software from the manufacturer.
