    Welcome to the Apple Support Communities

     

    You can try it, but Boot Camp 5 only supports 64-bit Windows 7 and 8 versions, not Windows Server. If you manage to install Windows Server, then you may not be able to install Boot Camp drivers, so your Mac won't run properly with Windows. It's up to you if you want to try that

    Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 share the same core. You can use Windows 8 drivers on Windows Server 2012 without any problem.... So you shouldn't have any pb at all.
