    I am very much a newbie at trying to bypass this activation. I have been able to load the NOS, but I could not find a working answer to get past the 30 day NAG. I have been reading, but I need a newbie FAQ or something. Any pointers or info to read on this subject would greatly appreciated.

    I am trying to get my arms around this. I ran Loader 7 and the SLIC 2.1 in BIOS returns and says DELL SLIC Table found. Press OK to install . . . . It still did not work though. Any pointers would be great. Until then I will continue to read. TIA :D

    Not really so complicated

    There is already an SBS2008 thread that tells you how to activate it. Check my post history.
