    I'm struggling to activate Windows Server 2012 (x64) Essentials with Daz Loader 2.2.1 on a Dell PowerEdge R620. I installed with the 120 day evaluation key then ran the loader. Windows didn't activate. I tried 'disable type 4' then 'disable type 3' then 'legacy mode with ignore existing slic' and still it won't activate. I used the command "DISM /online /Set-Edition:ServerStandard /ProductKey:xxxxxxxxxxx /AcceptEula" which converted Essentials to standard and repeated with the loader but still it won't activate.

    I've been reading the threads but can't find why it's not working. can anyone please suggest what I can do next?

    EDIT: SLIC ToolKit tells me slic version 2.2. XSDT, Pub Key and Marker are DELL PE_SC3 but no RSDT. Is this relevant?
