I’m currently building a new demo environment on Hyper-V for the next Public Beta of OpsMgr 2007 R2 and was looking for a fast way to install some new Windows Server 2008 machines.

And today I stumbled upon this article from John Baker.

“Are you working with Hyper-V?  Want to save some time creating virtual machines?   Then take a look at the Virtual Machine download site, there are two virtual machines available:  Windows Server 2008 Enterprise Server CORE installation and Windows Server 2008 Enterprise Server FULL installation.

These VHD's are only available in English only and is only for evaluation and testing purposes. Evaluating Windows Server2008 software does not require product activation or entering a product key. Any edition of Windows Server 2008 may be installed without activation and evaluated for an initial 60 days.”
