    Hello,

    I apologize if this topic has been brought up, but for me, I still cannot find or understand how to pass the cd-key requirement during the initial stages before nstalling windows server. I have tried different keys in the SLP post but none seem to be allowing me to proceed to install. All keys have been invalid.

    Is there some way to pass the key requirement that I am missing?

    Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you.

    Thank you! I would like to know once I install windows server and I activate it with toolkit, would there be any issues when it comes to windows updates?

    no issues related to the toolkit. Any issues are MS own from their updates (if any)
