    I know this has been answered before but I am unable to understand the "steps" to achieve this. So what I want to do is, install 2012 on dell server and have it activated (for educational purposes only).
    what I have is a dell 1950 with latest bios, 2.7. I have server 2012 disc. Can someone point me to instructions on how to make a dell oem installation disc so it can then be installed on the 1950 and be activated?

    are you on Virtual or Physique env? Windows loader you can find it here over it convert your OS and install the Certificate, works like a charm !

    dont think your pe 1950 will get bios upgrade with slic 2.2 :( i have one pe r710 from 2009 with latest bios and this have only slic 2.1 and i have a pe r310 from 2011 this have slic 2.2

    so a loader or kms is the best choice i think. i see you use Server 2012 Datacenter is this a real dell dvd
