Windows 2008 - Activation issue
Posted on 2011-09-07
Hi ive installed an 'evaluation copy of Win 2008' but during installation it keeps prompting to input the 'Product key' - I have not got one, eventually Im able to get passed this and complete install and use but always seem to get service stopping or causing intermitant problems!
Does anyone know where I can get temporary Product key from as I think this appears to be the issue?
integrated on my disc is already SP2 and nothing more as downloading updates appear to cause more problems!!
On completion of the install I found the 'product id' in one of the windows I opened but the 'digits' did not appear to be enough so incorrect last time I tried!!!
I also cannot now open features due to 'restriction of privileges' for eg!!! total loada ..!!!!!!!!!! Even though yes Im the 'admin'!!!
Ive probably installed about 5 time now as never used to get this 'Product key' message before, even though Im not connected to the internet via cable at all and cleared out cmos and repartitioned and reformatted!!!
No one appears to know!!!!!!
