Freedisk replacement on w2008 R2?

I see there is no RK for server 2008, im looking specifically for freedisk.exe, do i have to enable some role for this to be available?

according to this: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc731162 it should be available but i cant find it on any of 4 2008 servers (2 of them 2008 r2), so maybe Im missing some role or install option.

i have some scripts that use freedisk, and would need to modify them and find a replacement tool or create my own for them to keep working. i just think it was a great tool and easy to use.

FreeDisk is part of the Windows 2000 Resource Kit and, while its not officially supported, still works.  Copy it from a PC which has it and you should be good to go.
