It is very awesome and amazing discovery, thank you very much, dw5304, I have two questions: Could you upload it to the FTP? I am really interested to try Windows Server 2012 R2 Datacenter preview, could you also upload the product key text file to the FTP?
It may require product key in order to install.

I am downloading it now from Microsoft, and I will upload it to BA ASAP , becouse my connection is a little bit faster and should not take long for the upload to complete.

Seems to be some irritating new checks or such with this one. DVD refuses to run setup (gets as far as the boot screen and then quickly crashes saying the computer needs restarted), and trying to run either setup.exe from the desktop (Windows 8 and Server 2012) results in "this app cannot run on this PC".

...Sigh.

You need a 64-bit compatible machine in order to run it.

I have noticed that the ISOs are already on the FTP uploaded by @dw5304 .

You can access them using the upload acount.

Thank you once again @dw5304

Hashchecks are fine. So this one is a puzzle.

Then it could be a compatibility issue with your system. As it is still in beta stage, it may not be compatible with all systems.

Where do you want to go today?

Favourite OS
All Microsoft operating systems!
I'm very much looking forward to testing this, so thanks to everyone for uploading it. :)

At the moment, though, I'm still focusing on finishing up with all of the builds currently available here, which I'll do today. I haven't even finished moving everything from my old PC to my new PC, including Windows 8 Enterprise, but I'll probably get around to doing it after my "Windows 8.1 testing adventure".

By the way, what's new in Windows Server 2012 R2 from Windows Server 2012 and earlier?
