I recently upgraded our core to 9.5 SP2 and mainly in hopes of gaining the Server 2012 R2 and Windows 8.1 options for OSD. Under SP1 during deployment (of 2012 R2) HII runs successfully but since Server 2012 R2 reports its windows version as 6.3 HII finds no drivers. After upgrading to SP2 supposedly options have been added for Server 2012 R2 and 8.1 however I am unable to find these options when looking at any provisioning templates and HII fails with the same problem as previously seen in SP1. Since we have already upgraded to SP2 I don't think apply LD95-SP1-CP_BASE-2013-1017 is going to be the best option. Has anyone had success deploying Server 2012 R2 or Win8.1 since the SP2 upgrade?
same here, we just upgraded to sp2 for 9.5 and do not see win8.1 or 2012 listed in OSD. I have a support case open waiting for answers.
I have a ticket open with support as well. They haven't gotten back to me yet so I'll post here if they give me anything worthwhile.
Support replied to my ticket and said this feature is being rolled into the 9.6 update sometime in the future. I was able to successfully deploy Server 2012 R2 regardless.

I've heard that 9.6 will come out sometime in May. I'm guessing around the time of the Interchange conference.
