I need a basic, clean Windows Server 2008 32-bit (x86) AMI on Amazon AWS.

There are several on the Community AMI list but I am not sure which is a good one to get. Have you tried any of them? Are these community AMIs verified to be clean of virus/spyware/bitcoin-miners?

Which one do you recommend?

    I'd be pretty careful with this. If you can use a modern windows version supplied by AWS that would be preferable. – Tim Apr 27 '20 at 23:47
  • There are no longer any Windows Server 2008 32-bit images in the AWS catalog. I need Windows Server 2008 32-bit for this application. – scottkeen Apr 28 '20 at 1:06
  • If you have the OS as VM you can import it into AWS, otherwise best not use AWS. – Tim Apr 28 '20 at 4:17
