including Kernel patch during new installation


Dear Collegues,

Is it possible to include a Kernel patch during a new installation?

I am doing a fresh install of Solman 7.01 on windows server 2008 R2 (v6.1) MAX DB.

During teh installation I am getting a message that win 2008 R2 is not supported. I found SAP note: Found this note: Note 1383873 where SAP provides Kernel patchech for Kernel 7.01 that would support the 2008 R2 installation.

I am surprised that if there is already support for R2 why it was not included in the DVDs we got very recently.

Is there a workaround like attaching the patches to the Kernel installation files? I am not quite sure if the installation will get completed successfully so that I could apply teh kernel later on.

Or is there any other way?
