WHS Evaluation Edition RRS feed

  • Question

  • So for reasons i won't go into here i've decided i need to reinstall WHS.  Only i can't find my dvd.  I guess I could go out and torrent it, but if i do that I can't be certain that someone hasn't messed with it.  Microsoft offer an 'evaluation edition' here: link.  So would it be possible to use my legit key that i can presumably retrieve from my OEM install (using the magical jelly bean key finder link) to install and activate so it becomes the full version?

  • No the trial version has stuff hard coded into it, you need an original OEM disk to install
