We have ourselves a brand new HP server which is ready to install a SBS 2008 standard server on it. Problem is we don't have the operating system yet, or actually the license (serial) number for it. We do have a Microsoft Partner program SBS 2008 standard installation dvd. With this information I have 2 questions:

First question;

Is the link below a SBS 2008 license, which you can install a sbs 2008 standard with? Does it include a serial number for the installation for a SBS 2008 standard server?

Question 2:

If the above is correct, can the serial number be used on a SBS 2008 standard Microsoft partner program DVD disc?

The linki is for HP Bios Loked products.
You must use Microsoft partner program DVD disc and license.
You can get the software and license in

in order for you to install, you will need the "Product Key" for SBS2008
