    Is your KMS server available on same IP as previously?
    No firewall restrictions?

    If all is OK then the client will pick it up the activation again from KMS server

    That explains it all, does it not? VMWare hardware is significantly different as Virtualbox hardware

    I know the reason, I'm searching for a way to activate.
    I tried several loaders but then Virtualbox crashes on boot, making the VM not working.
    Daz's loader saying "Unsupported OS"

    What version are u using... v3.1.4?

    Working fine here... so obviously your craches are not related to loaders and such
    enough memory assigned to the VM?

    I tried with 1200MB RAM same result (Guru meditation).
    I'll try on different machine, but I doubt it will work.

    Why are you trying the odd numbers?
    It should really be 1280 if at all

    I tried 1280MB same thing, I don't think this is a memory issue, more likely something with the controllers of virtualbox.
    I'll try doing a fresh install of Windows 7 on Virtualbox rather than importing the image from .ovf format and try it.

    OK! Installing a fresh install of windows 7 enterprise, the CD-SLIC-LDR_DELL_QA09_0A2.1.iso boots OK but no luck activating a CSVLK key,.
    I tried some loaders but activate windows as OEM.
    I want to setup a KMS Server on Virtualbox.
    Does anyone know a way to activate CSVLK keys?
