This has not changed. Server 2012 is the same to access the Advance boot menu. Alternatively you can press F5 which will ask you what OS you want to select and at that point you can press F8 to access the Advanced menu.

However pressing F8 will do the same, you are probably not doing it at the correct time.

You may also want to change the BIOS settings to allow for a longer boot sequence/time so that you do not miss the Advance boot menu opportunity.

Will.
