    Is there anywhere I can download a CD ISO instead of a DVD ISO for the 60 day Evaluation of Windows 2008?

    x86 version is 1783MB and x64 version 2539MB so no way it'll fit on a CD! The days of the Windows OS on a CD are a thing of the past!

    I wouldn't worry too much, most Microsoft.com downloads are resumable.

    Wasn't worried about the download I just haven't got a blank DVD-+R at present some are on back order lol. Downloaded the DVD and copied it to a removable HDD I'll install it from there.

    I haven't looked at 2008 Server yet. Will it install without a serial similar to Windows Vista and XP SP3?
