    ok just to clarify after googling...

    7601.17514.101119-1850_x64fre_server_en-us_OEM-GRMSXFREO_EN_DVD.iso - OEM
    en_windows_server_2008_r2_with_sp1_x64_dvd_617601. iso - RETAIL
    en_windows_server_2008_r2_with_sp1_vl_build_x64_dv d_617403.iso - CORPORATE

    and if im not mistaken the OEM version is the only one also known as RTM!

    retail and volume are post rtm... and i dont think there are retail or volume RTM and OEM is always RTM

    if im mistaken please correct me :eek:
