Change Windows 2003 CD Key without doing a repair install
Posted on 2010-11-10
I would like to know is there a way to change the Windows 2003 (SP1) cd key without doing an repair install?
I am needing to do it this way as I am unsure what damage the repair will do all the applications and patches that I have installed and configured on this system.
I know Magic Jelly Bean used to be able to do this by that was in the Windows XP days and I have tried the reactivation method where make the system believe it needs to be activated but following this route, I can get to the activate over the telephone screen but clicking the Change Product Key does nothing, as well as the drop down box that would show the country I choosing dial numbers has nothing in it.
