As the topic says, I have the product key, i just need a legal place or a safe place to get the needed software for a server rebuild.
Just a FYI I'm not encouraging piracy.
I would honestly just head to piratebay or a similar site and find a non cracked ISO for it and hope its not dead.
Not a lawyer or anything so don't take what I say to heart but it should be legal as long as you don't get a modified version of windows or and don't use a key posted there, just use your own key.
That is honestly the only place I can find a ISO for it that doesn't scream adware/malware/virus. Besides that your only other option appears to be paying $30 to $50 for a CD.
It is good advice and if i have to, that is what i will do, as a last resort, I am just hoping there is better means of doing so, or maybe someone has the iso that would upload it somewhere for me. However option two will be Linux, i wanted to use windows because of the ease file transfer set up within a network, but i might have to do the Linux thing
However, thank you very much.
thanks for that, i tried the 1/2 did not work. going to go linux
