Office & Win 7 KMS server

Hey all,
I am new to the whole KMS server concept. I have already managed to install an Office 2010 KMS server. I am wondering how can I alsi include/add a Windows 7 KMS key? I've read different things that say you can, and ones that say you need a seperate KMS.

Can they be combined? If so, how do I add the Win 7 key?

I would say the one server can be used, although we're not using it yet:

My understanding of this is yes you can. You might find it easier to install the volume Activation Management tool to manage your keys

I am not understanding the logic. Yes, my KMS server is my newest 2008 R2 server. I did activate my server os initially with my MAK key.You state I need to remove my office key and then add my Win 7 key.. To me I would only then be able to have Win 7 KMS... what am I missing?

Hi wonker2,

You do not need to remove your office key. KMS of Office already done  by you and no additional work need for it. Now we are going to remove your MAK key (for Windows) so we can install and activate your KMS key for Windows  (not for office). By the way which Windows 2008 R2's version you are using? According to that I can tell you which KMS key you need exactly. and what kind of agreement you made with MS?  According to your agreement you might have KMS C, B or A keys for Windows.
