    Hello,

    I've converted my windows server 2003 Standard Edition SP1 to a virtual machine to do some tests and I'm wondering if I can activate it since the physical to virtual conversion causes several hardware changes for windows and now I'm asked to activate it ?
    Notice that I have an OEM licence and I've checked with M$ services: my current OEM licence does not allow me to use it as a virtual machine.
    Thanks.

    Is it really easier to ask the question then just read a bit?

    If you read you might even learn something
