    Hello from Germany!

    any1 around did that update? I got Server 2012 in german language...

    If so, what download files do I need? Is there a regular uodate (cant find any @ microsoft downloads...)

    Thanks for your assistance and best regards


    BTW: the installed Server 2012 is running on DELL with SLIC BIOS 2.2 ;-) modded by the perfect guys here!
    Will R2 be activated w/o any KMS??

    Keep going!

    IMHO just try it.

    Download Server 2012 R2, Clone your current Server 2012 as a keepsake, and install 2012 R2.

    The only thing that I can foresee going wrong is the activation; it might stuff up and say its not legitimate. The upgrade process should be pretty straight forward.
