Hello whiteshiel, welcome to Sysnative!
My name is Tom and I'll be assisting you along with one of our trainees: Go The Power. Please don't be worried about being helped by a trainee though, firstly he's very good and secondly I'll be reviewing all of his scripts before he posts them! There might be a slight delay between our posts as there's time zone differences between us, but we'll do our best to get you up and running as soon as possible!
I've let Go The Power know and we'll get back to you with a fix! In the mean time, if you could refrain from attempting to fix this yourself then that would be great - I know it's frustrating and you're doing it in good faith, but you've already put a Windows 8/Server 2012 file on a Server 2008 installation so it's just making it harder for us to work our magic :)
