    Hi all,

    I installed Windows Server 2003 R2 Standard Retail German. Didn't use the second CD to make it R2, so computer properties says "Windows Server 2003 Standard".

    I spend hours to install & configure all software.

    The problem is that i can't activate because serial used for setup is blacklisted by M$.

    What i have is an OEM-Key which has never been used and is a real one which I'm able to register at M$

    So what can I do to make my installation accept the OEM-Key and to activate with this OEM-Key ?

    Thanks for your help in advance ...
