    If you have this on a VM, then can you post the output of the following command. Run it from command prompt

    Code:
    wmic path SoftwareLicensingProduct get id,description
    OEM-SLP is possible only if a key is leaked. Rearm will work unlimited times. If KMS is available then we have permanent activation, but in Vail there is no KMS activation.

    I was expecting more ID's. Looks like only way to activate is through Retail key.

    Is this final, or can they change this later on when it's ready to RC or something like that? It's based on Windows Server 2008 R2, so I was sure you could use KMS and maybe OEM-SLP....

    Even Vail is in Beta but it has 6 different types of activation ID. Maybe they will add the rest of the ID's when it comes to final.
