I finally got Windows Server 2012 Essentials R2 Preview to install successfully onto an HP ProLiant N40L MicroServer after disabling the on-board NIC and using Intel NIC add-on cards. Read about it in the thread: Anyone Successfully install Server 2012 R2 Essentials on a MicroServer?
Many thanks to DieHard who got this to work a week earlier by disabling the on-board NIC and sent me step-by-step instructions via Twitter!
