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?

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