  • As far as I am aware, WHS1 is no longer available - certainly not from Microsoft. Why do you need a second copy?

  • You can check sites such as Amazon or NewEgg, but I think you'll find that Windows Home Server 2011 has been in the market long enough that there's no V1 product left in the channels.

  • If you will be installing on substantially the same hardware again (motherboard, NIC, etc.), then you do not need a second license.  In fact you will more than likely find it will activate with no difficulties.  If it won't activate over the Internet, then use telephone activation and explain the circumstances.  Microsoft has (in the past) been very cooperative with activating WHS v1.

  • I install on a quite different Hardware and just want to obtain a license key for this software. Is this at all possible ??

    We found the WHS2011 NOT manageable for consumers !

  • No, license keys for system builders are only available with the purchase of the software for installation.
