    When everyone can get their own personal free MAK key(s) for 2008 R2 (S, E) from Dreamspark (using info from the right thread), why would they seek for activators? Just get your key (it takes 10-15 min along with getting LiveID), and if you plan to change HW 100 times or install R2 on 100 machines, get 100 keys.

    I found this 'smartcrack similar to 'thehotfix' site but....

    Bill's smart enough to overwrite it with new patch

    loaders work fine, it just takes time to get OEM keys for it. It is not like you can go to a retail store and buy a server running server 2008 r2.

    I'm really confused.
    I used Windows Activator LE 8.1 for my w7 and server 2008 r2 copy and it worked like a charm

    i start the .exe, press activate, wait 5 sec and done

    is there anything wrong with it?

    if you used an activator it probably modified your system files and replaced them with Windows 7 RC ones, the easiest way to tell is try to add a role specific to server like Active Directory or DHCP or DNS.

    Right now there are 0 OEM keys known for Server 2008 R2, so if your copy says activated and you used some sort of crack then don't be surprised when your system starts shutting down and rebooting at random intervals.

    i'm interested in the topic of getting R2 activated, but i dont think i'd want to use a loader of any sort for a server.

    interesting how theres even OEM SLP keys for server OS, but too bad it takes long for them to get out. surprised it took a year for 2008 keys to get out

    for sure it seems the best solution is to get free R2 key from dreamspark.. i've gotten myself a few, literally spend 2 minutes for each one

    LE 8.1 can activate 2008 but not 2008 r2.

    Find a KMS server on the internet to activate R2 for now.
