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

You can download the ISO of respective OS from Microsoft website, as the license key will pasted on your server.

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 ?

you need to download windows server 2012 standard version not R2 from Microsoft website.

Yes, I have that ISo now - the question is  - Where do HP have the disks
Aditya AroraNetwork & Hardware Commented:
Now a days they generally don't give the Physical media(Disk). only paper license. which will be pasted on your CPU(server)

contact HP support
don't get from microsoft directly as HP will have custom OEM media with the necessary drivers for that system

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.
