Hi,

Windows Server 2012 RC installation did not ask for product key.

Please refer to the following link to download the ISO and perform the upgrade again to check the result.

Download Windows Server 2012 Release Candidate Datacenter

In addition, you may try to find the key by following the suggestion above.

Hello Arthur Li, I understand this is an old post, but I have the same problem and the link listed above doesnt explain. I have downloaded server 2012 per Technet guidance and reached this error. Please help.

The exact error is: "Windows cannot find the Microsoft Software License Terms. Make sure the installation sources are valid and restart the installation."

  The product key is preinstalled in the trial version from Technet.

 I suspect that you have a bad install or a corrupt download.

Hi,

I did find the same issue when installing Server 2012 on VMware. While create a new VM if you predefine windows 2012 DVD it do not install.

However if you create VM saying will install OS later or insert the Setup disk later after creating VM will able to install.

I hope this helps.
