    Hi,

    I've got a problem. A Notebook I'm using can't upgrade to Windows 8.1 because of a very bad BIOS implementation. Server 2012 still seems to get updates. Is there a way to get them on Windows 8.0 too?

    Regards

    Indeed. For most updates the server version is the same as the client version. The same holds true for Windows 7 / Server 2008 R2 and Windows 8.1 / Server 2012 R2. Ofcourse, for Windows 8.0, this only works for the x64 version, as there is no x86 server.
