    Hi,
    I gonna download this cause everyone says it works nicely on desktops when you configure that properly and tweak a little bit. Unfortunately nobody says how to crack it so it would be nice to know before doing anything:D I think Slic moded bios is useless in that case?

    Activating Server 2008 for desktop use

    Have a look at the following thread for the original from colinzim;

    http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/1827

    Here are the basic steps;

    1. Install Vista Ultimate and activate.

    2. Copy the tokens.dat file from C:\Windows\ServiceProfiles\NetworkService\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\SoftwareLicensing to USB or floppy.
    (Remove space from before "Roaming\" - seems to be a vBulletin bug that gets put in when you post)

    3. Install Server 2008.

    4. Configure ALL your server options/roles etc

    5. When your server is the way you want it, overwrite your tokens.dat file with the one you saved on USB stuck to above location.

    6. Reboot

    7. You will be asked for the product key. Use the SAME key you used to install/activate Ultimate.

    8. Enjoy

    I tired this method already it's just a workaround that cripples the server and network features. Really all you are doing is downgrading and creating trouble for yourself. Just wait for the OEM SLP certificates and key to leak out. Hopefully it will come out soon.

    I agree.

    Verified.
    That looks like being a full server at a glance, but not.

    After I post a question on that thread, the original poster (not the original creator of the method (later I found great a many postings describing that one)) erased his followups (failing to do that for the thread head because it's that?).

    He's probably noticed that.

    It's not until this week or like that preinstalled computers are in the product line of PC vendors in my country, unlike the VL edition.
    If that's the case also in most of the other countries, you will have to be waiting a little bit more...
