    We now have a new "Windows Server 2008" Section. Over the next few days, I will be editing, moving and merging threads and posts related to Server 2008.

    Thanks. It sounds like a lot of work.

    I spent hours scouring the forum last night trying to sort out Server 2008 activation information. There's a lot of good stuff here. Some of the activation stuff is dated and newer methods exists, and some is cross-mixed into threads.

    For example creating an OEM activation DVD and how it relates to using SLIC softmod or using BIOS mod and which methods are potential candidates or known working for ESX and Hyper-V. These are topics somewhat tangled.

    Here's some of the topics I seem to recall reading about:
    • OEM DVD Activation
    • Vista Loader 1.x
    • Visa Loader 2.x
    • Vista Loader 3.x
    • BIOS Mods
    • ESX Guest OS Activations
    • Hyper-V Guest OS Activation
    • WOW5
    • WOW6
    • Activation Bypass - Not Genuine
    • DataCenter Activation - Token.dat
    • Free Single Activation Serials

    If you manage to sort it all out, that would be a great service.

    Yeah, what DigitalDNA says is true. All over the place and contradictory as well.

    Reginakampher, you said you did succeed in installing MSDN 2008 with OEM key ? Is that correct? Some people are saying impossible. I am confused. is MSDN KMS server only ?

    Thanks in advanced
