Dell PowerEdge: How to Download the Microsoft Windows Server Media / ISO file?


In most cases, Dell PowerEdge servers are shipped with the Operating System pre-installed. Except if it has been optionally ordered, the Windows Server media is not included in the package.

If you want to reinstall a Windows Server OS on your PowerEdge, but you lost or don't have the original Windows installation media at hand, you can download the matching ISO-file directly from the Microsoft website (after filling the registration form).

These versions will start in trial mode and can be activated with an OEM Serial Key.
