Is my OEM DVD I bought a year ago different to the current download? RRS feed

  • Hi Mel,
    the trial version and the OEM version are different binaries, so you will need the OEM DVD for the Server reinstall.
    The newer OEM versions usually contain Power Pack 1, but still a lot of updates need to be applied after the installation is completed.
