What is the difference between the "LOF" and "FOD" ISO downloads for Windows Server?

@TexasViking  LOF is the image that contains the "Language packs and Optional Features" - it's much bigger at 5.7GB
FOD is Features on demand, that gives you a smaller installation file to start with, then downloads the appropriate feature components into the build when you run it and choose them. It's only 335MB.

Thanks for this Heather! Is there any way we can get the SQL eval added to the page as well? That link is also broken (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/evalcenter/evaluate-sql-server). Thanks!
I second the request to get SQL Evals added. Need 2016 pretty bad right now.
I have a Dell PowerEdge Server with OEM Windows Server 2019, but now I can't find my DVD media, could I use this evaluation ISO to install and then use the OEM key to active it?

Thanks.

@Heather Poulsen It would be awesome to get a Link for MSSQL 2016 soon as well :)

Thanks for this, saved the day :)

@Mike Terrill@rayoc79, and @Road2Nz - Good news! The Microsoft Evaluation Center is back up. Use the navigation at the top of the page to locate the SQL Server evals you need.
