re-installed server 2008 standard x64

I have had to reinstall my Server 2008 Standard x64 onto the same server, same volume, newly formatted partition.  And now it wont activate.  It says "The count reported by your KMS is insufficient.  What can I do to get this to activate?

Thanks,
Chris

I was able to resolve my issue.  I am not sure what I did when I installed the OS, but it wanted a KMS license and would not accept my MAK license.  So I sysprep'd the machine with the MAK license and then it would activate.  SO I am good to go now!

Thanks for your suggestions.
