    Hi, I am trying to install Windows Server 2019 on VMware. I have the 180-day trial from TechNet. I would like to find an Eval of Server 1809. I want more updates than 2019. I don't need Server I just want to update it everyone once in a while. I don't have Visual Studio or Volume Licensing. It's just me at home. So where can I get a link to Windows Server 1809? Evaluation? From Visual Studio? Please reply. Thanks

    If you are looking for eval of Semi Annual Channel server, then you will not find it, because it does not exist. There are no eval SKUs for ServerStandardACor and ServerDatacenterACor which are SKUs of SAC server. Only LTSC based servers have eval versions.

    Hi, thanks for your reply. Is there any other way to get Server version 1809? Not Eval? From MSDN website? Does Insider Preview have Server 1809? With a GUI?

    I see it's not on TechBench Dump. Is that you?

    I'm trying Windows Server Insider Preview - 18317 English from Microsoft. I'll report back. I have Insider Preview 18xxx Windows 10 Pro and I like the new 1903 Desktop. A lot of new stuff.

    I think Insider Preview is only Core. No Desktop Experience. Does Server version 1809 have a gui? Downloads?

    No, the semi-annual channel Server builds do never have any GUI. Only the LTSB/LTSC version do.

    It's really a shame that we can't add Desktop Experiance to the Semi-Annual 1903 new updates.. and future updates too.
