Anyone know where I can obtain a copy of Server 2008 with SP2. MS website has everything separate.

I have them downloaded separately,  Server and SP.

Need it for lab environment on Hyper-V 2012 R2

How do you install server 2008 sp2 or server 2008 R2 SP1 as a 2012 R2 Hyper-V virtual machine without an ISO file?

Install either of these OS on the server apply service pack, create image. Reinstall server 2012 R2, create VM with the image.

Thanks

You must always start with the original media or an ISO.
