I have a client that wants to purchase a copy of SERVER 2008 ( not R2) as his point of sale vendor says it will not work on R2 .
He thinks he can buy a 2012 ( or ?) Server license and downgrade it similar to the way Dell sells Windows 10 machines or Windows 8 machines but get Windows 7 loaded,. ( I do this all the time) I think it just makes Microsoft able to say they are selling a lot of Win8 or win10
I have searched Amazon, newegg, Ebay, craigslist etc with no results..
Any thoughts on this ?
