Windows 2008 has reached end of life status. We should remove this builder and investigate if there are any other steps that should be taken in the process.

These builders are used by Go releases right now. Go 1.17 and 1.16 are documented to require Windows 7 or newer. Before we can remove the builders, we need to start using a newer builder for releases if possible, otherwise wait for them to become unused.

Is there any timeline by when Go would stop supporting windows 2008 R2?
