windows server 2012 R2 downgrade

Hi,

I would like to downgrade windows server 2012 R2 OEM to windows server 2008

i can't find it online.

please help



Downgrade rights for OEM must be done through the OEM. Even if you found the media, you wouldn't have activation keys. 2012 keys won't activate a 2008 install. You have to work with the OEM for downgrades.

Whenever someone has a plan that involves downgrade rights, I *strongly* advise VL instead of OEM for exactly that reason. Much easier to work with.

Contact your OEM and tell them you want to exercise downgrade rights for your OEM license. They are responsible for providing you media and an appropriate activation key.
