Google Cloud lab not accepted because OS image name changes

Badge +1
I do the Essential Cloud Infrastructure: Foundation. Lab 1 Creating Virtual Machines asks me to create a VM based on "Windows Server 2016". However, there is no such OS image / boot disk. If I choose the closest image, which is "Windows Server 2016 Datacenter", I get a failed.

How do I inform Coursera and have them fix this? I gave it as comment in the lab, but no reply so far.

Now did "Lab 2 Working with Virtual Machines". After a while, the top right showed again "Start lab" even though I was in the middle of it. So I clicked it again. The points weren't updated anymore. At the end clicked on "Run step" for all steps that didn't show all points and got 30/30 shown. Then ended the lab.

Back on the main page, it shows that I failed this lab because I completed only 33%.

Basic idea of labs is great, but the implementation seems very shaky, meaning unusable.

Previously did "Google Cloud Platform Fundamentals: Core Infrastructure". There noticed that the Compute Engine lab didn't work and that there has been a pull request open for almost 2 months to fix it, but that the committers didn't bother merging it.

Again, great idea, sloppy implementation.
