I was looking for the proper version of Win 2008 R2 to download, and cannot find a 32 bit. Is it 64-bit only? I'm still on a 32-bit machine, going to run it under VMWare. Do I need to go back to the original Win 2008 (i.e. the one before R2)?
As of Server 2008 R2, Microsoft is no longer shipping 32-bit versions of their Server operating systems. Yes, this does indeed put a maximum version limit on 32-bit only hardware! We can't upgrade our Domain Controllers to R2 because of this, we need new hardware for it. Those old Pentium 4's won't handle 64-bit.
