Buying a license during the trial period. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am happy with WHS and I am still within my 120 day trial.  I want to buy the license so it continues to run on the hardware I have it install on.  How do I accomplish this?

  • Short answer: you buy the fully licensed software and perform a server reinstallation. See this post in the FAQ section, which describes the process of converting your server from evaluation software to fully licensed software.

  • Where can I get the fully licensed software to do the reinstall?  All I can find are retail outlets that have it already installed on a system.

  • NeweggAmazon, many other e-tailers. It's not available as retail software ("shelfware"), only as OEM/system builder software.
