Guys! Thanks to Tito I finally managed to get around to tatooing and changing the oem files on my server. Is that all I need to make my evaluation copy "permanent" (no rebooting and whatnot)? I started getting a message about the server not being genuine about a week ago, and it started rebooting every other hour. Now that I have made this little tweak to it Im hoping thats going away If not, is there anything else I can do? And is there any way I can remove the evaluation copy stamp on the desktop? Cheers!
