I had two testing boxes that were transferred to me from a department in Italy. A dialog box tells me the Windows 2008 R2 OS is not a valid Microsoft product.
However, I cannot enter my valid product code, because the Windows activation section is missing. Microsoft told me to reinstall a valid OS, but there is a complicated testing application on these machines and reinstalling them will take me at least a week.
Is there a way to repair the Windows activation on these machines?
