    I'm not 100% sure but I think all Iso's are the same retail and VL, its just the product key that makes it VL people feel free to correct me if im wrong

    These are the 'official' gVLK and Retail Install Keys (they won´t activate) for Windows 8.1, taken from product.ini of Win 8.1 Enterprise.

    if you look at the list, you will see the product.ini contains not only win8.1 GVLK but for Server as well and ARM and Embedded etc as well.

    ExchgStdCAL 2013 SNGL OLP NL U

    the thing is im still awaiting the keys and media/links... but i need to move on its a big project and have limited time so can't wait for that stuff being shipped... i was wondering wich of the following versions would work with the keys i ordered!?

    Exchange Server 2013 (x64) - DVD (Multiple Languages)
    ISO Multiple Languages Release Date: 10/24/2012 DetailsThere is no subscription associated with your Microsoft account. Add a subscription to this account.
    File Name: mu_exchange_server_2013_x64_dvd_1112105.iso
    Languages: English, Japanese, Korean, Arabic, German, Spanish, French, Hebrew, Italian, Portuguese-Brazil, Russian, Chinese - Traditional, Chinese - Simplified
    SHA1: E9DDE6F776876B281215BEEDD7E2DB3AD525281F

    any idea?

    edit: perhaps i need OEM versions?

    vartaxe: The second one (4098MB) is what you will find for download in VLSC based on what you have purchased. That said, you can install either Retail, OEM or VL media using the generic (GVLK) key and insert your MAK later when it's made available to you.

    As for Exchange, download the latest service pack and install it (Exchange service packs, releases, whatever they are calling them now are full media and can be used for initial install). You can activate with your key later.

    what are the best hyperv 2012 r2 practices?

    should i leave the vm host and vm hdd as default on C:\
    or perhaps move the vm hdd to d:\
    or even move both the vm host and vm hdd to D:\

    also if my d:\ has 1TB free space can i create a 2TB vhdx? or isn't it recomended?
