I have a ML350G8 with Factory installed server 2012 std 2 cpu/vm

Where do I obtain the iso or disks for the operating system since it was factory installed and they didn't supply them.

I am trying to create a vm

While I can download version from the MS site - it took quite a while to get the right  version as the site gladly gives out R2 which doesn't work with the Key on the server for upgrade.

Surely HP must have to provide the disks some where ?

Now a days they generally don't give the Physical media(Disk). only paper license. which will be pasted on your CPU(server)

That is very annoying in that if I had to rebuild, I would have no disks.
If that occurred 3 year later - hard to get old from MS.
