    I have a Dell server that came with Server 2012 R2 Standard but no disk. Is it possible to make a Dell OEM disk for Server 2012 R2 Standard? I have seen ways to make OEM disks for XP and Win 7 but after doing some searching I could not find anything for Server 2012 R2 Standard.

    Why not just use DataCenter?

    The DELL 2012 R2 DC image is floating around (I imaged it up and sent it to a few people a while ago)

    This will work with the SLIC content in your BIOS already.

    From a technical point of view there is no changes between Standard and DataCenter on 2012 series ... it's all about VM licences (and on paper - not enforced)

    The key on your sticker is of little value - the untouched DELL use a single OEM:SLP key hardcoded on the DVD
