Prompt for product key when upgrading windows 2000 server to 2003 server RRS feed

  • 問題

  • I am upgrading the windows 2000 server to 2003 server. I put the CD to the 2000 server and select upgrade. Then I input the product key for 2003 server. But after copying the files and begin to install, it asked the product key again. I input the same product key for 2003 server. However, it showed that the product key is incorrect. I could not interrupt the upgrade process because I could only select "Previous step" or "Next step". When select "Next step", it prompted incorrect product key. When select "Previous Step", it only show the "Next step" button and the "X" to close the window is dim. What should i do ?

  • The server is a domain controller.  Is there any special issue to cater for ?

  • Is your product key is Windows 2003 Server? Is the old 2000 Server and the new Windows 2003 server have the same level (Standard vs Standard)?
