Hi,
Running windows server 2008 R2 domain with Domain and forest functional levels at 'server 2008 R2'.  My clients run windows 8.1 .  In my group policy I do not find the EdgeUI under computer settings, admin templates, windows components, EdgeUI.... so that I can disable this helpsticker in my windows 8.1 clients.  Is it because I am running domain and functional levels at 'server 2008 R2'?
Do I need to introduce a server 2012 Datacenter as Domain controller for this?
Need help with these questions.

should be there if you have a 2012 domain controller though raising the functional level is not necessary
the GPO settings are based on what the client supports; 2008 obviously doesn't know of windows 8/2012 new features
and the domain controller doesn't have to be datacenter; you can use standard

The administrative templates in group policy are not dependent on the version of the DC you are running, nor the functional levels. They are, as the name implies, template files. Older DCs won't have the newest templates, but that is simply a matter of copying the template files from the newer OS over to the machine that you are running GPMC on *or* into the central store if you set up that feature. A central store is not set up by default. So you'd need to know if someone did that to determine where to copy the updated templates.
