Extending Windows Server 2008 R2 Server System Certification


Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2 migrated from mainstream support to extended support on 1/14/2015. Normally, Microsoft no longer accepts server system certification submissions for Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2 beyond that date.  However, we have received feedback requesting an extension of the deadline to allow continued rollout of current generation server platforms (based on Haswell) with similar OS support to the servers that have already shipped.  Based on this feedback, and effective immediately, we are extending the submission deadline as follows:

  • Server system certification submissions will be accepted for Windows Server 2008 R2 through 8/31/2015
    • This applies only to the scenario described above (current generation Haswell-based server rollout)
  • Servers certified for Windows Server 2008 R2 will receive an automatic grant of the Windows Server 2008 Logo (unless otherwise requested by the partner)
  • Server system certification submissions for Windows Server 2008 R2 will not be accepted after 8/31/2015 

* Please note that driver and device certification requests may continue to be submitted through the end of extended support as normal (1/14/2020)
