My Trial Version ran out (early). Do I just use a key from a newly puchased OS?

    Question

  • I ran Windows Home Server for a little more than two weeks. I love the OS. It came up with a prompt notifying me that my trial version had expired. I couldn't get any support for this problem. I've since purchased a new WHS OS from Newegg. I'm waiting for it to arrive. Meanwhile there is a lot of media, and backups on the two HD's. I don't want to do an install and have it write over the data. Should I just enter the new product key into the trial version to save the data? Is there anything on the purchased version that I was lacking on the trial version? Like I said, I love the server software. I'm not so happy with MS's support.  Thanks, Jack
