    I have a 2008 R2 Server (SP1) running Hyper V.

    As per this thread

    forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/10157-SLP-1.0-activation-in-Hyper-V?p=149930#post149930

    I modded a WHS install disc with the DELL (OEMBIOS CRC=99735910) cert files and tried to activate in Hyper V. No Joy. Any suggestions?

    Disc was modded as per instructions and files here.

    forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/25428-Convert-Windows-Home-Server-PP3-Trial-to-OEM

    WHS installs perfectly and asks for a product key for activation, which is where I think i'm going wrong. Can any one send me the correct key, or if that is banned on the forums post the last few characters so at least I will know if any of the keys I tried are correct.

    I believe I modded the disc correctly as my last WHS install was done in a similar way with the HP bios tattoo tool.

    My other thought about it was that since that original post about Hyper V in 2009 the SLP in the bios of Hyper V has changed, if so can someone point me in the direction of modding it. I have searched the forums and found loads of mods fopr SLIC 2.1 but few for SLP 1.0 mods on the latest hyper v.

    Thanks

    Sorry, my mistake. I should have stated that its WHS (V1), so SLP 1.0 needed.

    I would use 2011 but drive extender is too awesome to do without.
