Looking to buy a CD key online RRS feed

  • Question

  • I read the article recently posted in MaximumPC about creating a Win Home Server, and so far, it is GREAT and i want it in full not just trial! however, i am living overseas and dont want to wait the 1-2 weeks for a DVD/CD to come in the mail over an APO address... plus, with the downloading, there is no need to have a CD... just the Key... Is there a way to purchase this online and receive a CD key in an email or something like that? or am i SOL and need to buy and wait for shipment?

    It doesn't matter because the eval version you downloaded from MS is not upgradable to a fully licensed version anyway.  You need both the DVD and the key.
