Will a Server 2008 x64 Key work for a Server 2008 x86 edition?

I have a legal key from a server that had 2008 server installed but it was 64 bit. Can I use that key for a server 2008 x86 (32) Bit Install?

I haven't tried on single license.  But with volumn licenses, it works for me.

I believe it will. It works for Windows 7 but that would be R2. 2008 is based on Vista

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

It depends on the license, but generally not. A single license, without any volume license with Microsoft means you are going to have to repurchase, unless you can get Microsoft to issue you  a new x86 license.

If you purchase the software and both versions came with the server or the package you bought then yes the key should work for both
