    Home Server does not use SLIC activation, it uses SLP 1.0 activation like Server 2003/XP. You need the OEM key and OEM BIOS files for WHS.

    I have the same question. I built a WHS box on an Intel 975XBX board and am at the end of my trial. I have read that antiWPA will allow it to keep working, but the timer keeps winding down. Can anyone tell me how to activate my WHS box? This seems to be all but imposable to find an answer

    kind sir, can please help me out and elaborate further on the WHS CHANGER tool?

    thought i was close to figuring it but no cigar. i still get the nag 30 day reminder which tells me the tool did not work?

    i used the TOOL choosing HP as SLP 1.0 brand since im testing it out on an HP 9429. when i run OEMActivation.VBS i get a GENERIC SOURCE error.

    really need guidance and help as ive had a couple of sleepless nights already.. not healthy for the wifey... :)

    also in the instruction, it says about modifying the BUILD.CMD file.. now, am i supposed to add these strings


    HP/COMPAQ
    'f000','ffea','0006','COMPAQ'
    'f000','0000','ffff','Hewlett-Packard'

    DELL
    'f000','0000','ffff','Dell System'
    'e000','0000','ffff','Dell Computer'

    IBM
    'e000','0000','ffff','IBM CORPORATION'
    'f000','0000','ffff','IBM CORPORATION'


    if so where? thank you again for your help.

    Windows Home Server activation

    I was tweaking with this for a about an hour last night and I have found a solution:

    After entering in the key found with most of the dl of WHS iso from pirate bay, follow these instructions from mydigitallife.net article:

    "Look it up, I can't post links yet. But it is in the articles section under WHS activation."

    I actually used this in conjunction with WHS Activat*r 1.0 I found on pirate bay which is based on AntiWPA. This may not be necessary, but I used it anyway.

    This worked out fine as I used WHS Activat*r 1.0 alone and was getting the 15 day activation warning. After I used the above mentioned method, all that went away.

    If you all need help or certain "files", PM me and I'll do my best to walk you through what I did.

    This is actually only my 2nd post and I have gotten such great info on this forum, I hope I am able to contribute.

    WHS SLP Keys

    I remember seeing WHS PP1 oem keys based on slp information here before but for the life of me I cannot find them again. I had a main HD failure and had to reinstall WHS. I have lost my OEM key and was wondering if anyone still had the DELL key or a link to a list of keys. If so please email me
