Activating Home Server Demo RRS feed

  • Question

  • I downloaded Windows Home Server and installed it on an old Dell Workstation.  I configured it and tested it a while.  I decided to buy a license.  I now have the license but when i try to activate the product it says invalid key.  I called to activate and the automated menu couldn't deturmine the product so I was passed to a representative.  The rep said it indicated it was XP and not Home Server.

    An added complication is that I sent the server to my daughter's office and i still have the install DVD.  Can I get this product upgraded and activated without blowing out all of the configuration I have already done to the server?  I have copied the install files from the DVD to the server.  There are only three days remaining on the demo.
