converting Windows 2000 OEM to Hyper-v guest
Posted on 2013-05-30
I have an old windows 2000 OEM server with RAID 1, trying to retire this server but the apps running in the server can't be re-installed. My only option is to convert this to virtual machine to be hosted at windows 2012 server.
The windows 2000 server license is OEM came with HP Proliant. To convert this to virtual machine, what steps to do get it online without licensing trouble? What I assume is, I may purchase windows 2000 server retail from ebay or somewhere, then reactivate it. Has anyone done it?
