Activation of evaluation Windows Server 2008 R2 copy
Hi, I have a problem. When I install my Windows Server 2008 R2 trial system, I am asked to activate it. I try, but there is message, that this pre version license is expired. What should I do now? Can I still use this system or I have to install it again(I tried to activate it earlier as I should, but with the same result, it can't activate). I used Slmgr /rearm but it didn't fix anything. Thanks, Charles

let's have a look, I didn't got into it before, because there is nothig more than it is said First, there is a standard pop-up window asking to activate a copy, if I click Activate, then I get this: This pre-release version of Windows has expired To keep using Windows, back up your files,and then install any released edition od Windows Server 2008R2 Enterprise. That's all. And from slmgr.vbs -dli I get: Name: Windows Server(R), ServerEnterprise Edition Description: Windows Operating System - Windows Server(R), RETAIL channel Partial Product Key: CGD48 License Status: Unlicensed
