I wish I found this last week when I installed Windows 2012 Server for the first time and installed Core in ignorance. It put the server out of commission for days because I downloaded the server software and installed it from an emulated drive. So I did not have a copy of the software on disk and had to jump through hoops before I was able to get the 2012 server bits on to a DVD to attempt the install again. This link would have saved me so much anguish.
