Server 201 Standard 16 Core ISO Download

I have purchased Server 2016 and have the key being delivered to me. In the meantime, I would like to go ahead and download the ISO so I can create the VM. I can go to MS site to get the eval version but when trying to download, it will only download the Datacenter edition. Any ideas where I can download Server 2016 Standard 16 core and I will license it when I receive the key?

If you didn't buy VL then there is no legal place to find what you want. If you did buy VL then you can log I to VLSC and have access to keys and downloads immediately.

I have the key being delivered to me, but still need the ISO even after I get the key so I can spin it up in my virtual environment

As I alread said. I'd your reseller didn't get this as a download for you, there is no LEGAL way to get this. And EE has policies about other methods this isn't a torrent site (even if you bought a key.)

I bought it from Amazon. Should I cancel and purchase differently?

If the seller did not provide you a download and you've decided you need/want one *right now*, yes.

Try this process, i don't see why it shouldn't succeed: http://woshub.com/how-to-upgrade-windows-server-2016-evaluation-to-full-version/

Last I tried, data enter won't flip down to standard (you can flip up to data enter though) and the eval is datacenter only.

Since the OP does want yet have the key, it'd be a matter of installing now, doing the work to make it production ready" since that is what they indicated was their plan... Then hope if works.

And if it doesn't, it's a full reinstall of host and any guests and loss of any steps/apps installed to get it to production. High risk. Not a path I'd recommend on a gamble that it works.

Risk, well, install to a vm, run DISM /online /Get-TargetEditions - risking to lose 10 minutes of your time, yes.

If you are a student or know a student they can go to imagine.microsoft.com, log in and download either the server 2016 standard or datacentre iso.  Once you have the .iso and set up your installation media (USB or DVD) you then can use your key.

ITNC, I'd like to know if you verified that my suggestion wouldn't suffice.
