This is the question. The key to edition activation chart shows 2008R2Ent/Std and earlier editions being able to activate but I don't see core. I'm assuming that is because it's the same. Should I have issues using this key to update 2008R2 Ent x64 core? (non itanium/datacenter)

Thanks

I think core is considered to be just a cut down version of Standard or Enterprise, hence not mentioned specially. See: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/server-cloud/windows-server/2008-r2-enterprise.aspx - from what I read KMS activation is possible.
