    I'm new here. I came searching for a way to permanently install/activate windows server 2008. I actually read through every post here pertaining to windows server 2008, and followed your process as close as possible. Amazingly I implimented a successful bios slic/certificate mod to my IBM PC. I am now running server 2008 standard with a real activation. Not only does it show activated in within the system summary, it shows validated when I ran the MS genuine advantage program. You guys are geniuses - thank you so much!!!

    I do have a tip of my own. If you want to extract an ISO image to add the certs so you can then burn your own bootable DVD's, you need to mount the "udf" iso with a freeware program called "virtual clone drive" - the rest is a piece of cake.

    You don't need to mount iso you can just open it in UltraISO or any ISO editing software and add your files or folders the just save ISO or burn to dvd, infact with UltraISO you cun burn on the fly i,e, you don't even need to save the edited iso file but it will burn the changeds to dvd.
