    As far as I'm aware, only release editions get put on the VLSC site. Betas and pre-releases are kept away from it, and put on technet instead.

    Thanks, next week I will be doing a Forest and Domain prep.

    I assume I don't need to do a RODC prep as I am already on 2008 R2?

    Thanks

    you don't need to do any prep anymore its automatically part of the installation of the AD roll, though i believe you can still do it if you want.
