Due to an impending hardware failure, we had to convert a physical server to a virtual server on an ESX host. The physical server was activated with a Dell OEM version of Win Server 2003. Upon powering up the new virtual server, we received a message that the OS needed to be activated before we can log in. I have valid keys on our enterprise agreement to use, but when I choose to activate, I received nothing but a blank screen with red 'X' in the corner. (See attached screen cap).
Anyone have anyway to correct the activation screen or activate in an alternative method?
