Such a noobish question, but I'm bit confused. Readed many threads, and I'm not sure is activation for Server 2012 R2 possible? I know at least 2012 is in supported OS list in Windows Loader, but not 2012 R2. So is there an "tool" or something for 2012 R2, or is it better to go with 2012 and try Loader or what, advise needed. Also can I download the "trial" from MS directly and activate it with something like I did on 2008 R2, just used Loader on that. Sorry for such a noobish question, but would like to get answer for this, so what's the best way? Thanks for help!
