    Hi all,

    for a few weeks i have downloaded the MSDN Gold release from Windows Server 2008 Enterprise R2 (x64).

    I have activated this version with an 'vista-activator' by selecting ultimate edition. And it worked so far. (the activation was successfully) I think that this is an type of OEM activation from Vista Ultimate.

    But now I have one big problem:
    After the activation and a configuration from a software raid1 over the disk management console from w2k8 my server is not starting up anymore! (before i made the configuration from the mirror all was working fine)

    Now I get the following error messages:
    vista loader 2.1.2

    fallback 1
    find--set-root /bootmgr

    error 17:file not found
    booting windows nt/2000/xp

    fallback 2
    find--set-root /ntldr

    error 17:file not found
    booting enter command line

    boot failed! press any key......cmd line

    Maybe anybody can help me?
    Or should i use an complete different way and versions?

    Best regards,

    XD killed da system with vista act*vator.
    From Server 2008 and vista we've learned never use cr**ks, that manipulate tokens.dat to activate the other system.

    tokens.dat also have runtime profiles in it, that describe which system modules can be start on which version.
    Now u maybe unterstand what happen when vista profiles injected in server.

    Best way: SLIC 2.1 and wait for OEM Key, till this use 180-day evaluation.

    thanks for your answer.
    But one thing is not 100% clear for me: Why this crack is working without the internal software raid1?
    Because i get these problem only if i configure an raid1 with the windows internal board tools. (disk management)

    Any other options that i could use maybe?

    Best regards,

    In short, use the Daz loader and get a copy of the 2008 R2 Enterprise key from the MDL forum and all will be well, trust me
