    Wow nice! Thank you!
    Nevertheless, is there any way to remove the watermark?
    Thanks!

    Wow 180-day keys awesome!! I can change to real keys right, I see the change product key so I assume I can do that correct?

    I also get my std 3 rearms too right? So that is 260-days? Oh I see it now 5 rearms?! Awesome that is 180+150=330 Days for free!!

    Watermark will go away when you use a non-eval key.

    Are you sure about those 330 days?
    Shouldn't it be 30 + (5*30) = 180 days?

    The keys give you 180 days, then you rearm and get 5 rearms for 30 days.

    Re-install needed when OEM key comes avaliable with evaluation-key?

    Do you have to do a full re-install with the evaluation key if a OEM key has slipped to activate with a SLIC 2.1 moded motherboard?

    In that case we can a least wait for half a year on the slipped OEM key and run W2K8 R2 all the time.

    KMS Client Setup Keys are NOT trial keys, hence they will NOT work for 180 days

    @tkrose, please do not make false suggestions!

    On the first page of this forum, Kenny07 says that the "Key's should be activateable unlimited times ". Does this mean after my 5 rearms and reactivations (900 days), I will still be able to reactivate after the 180 days? Or what is meant when Kenny07 says "Key's should be activateable unlimited times"? Thank you!!

    Similar to a retail key, the 180 day trial keys need to be activated in order to grant you the license to use the OS. However, the license you get from activating a trial key will only be a 180 day license, unlike what you get from a retail key. The trial key needs to be activated within 10 days after installation.

    What rearming does is reset the "grace period" time you have left to perform the key activation. So for the trial version, this will only reset the time you have left to activate to 10 days each time you rearm (i.e. you can get another 50 days before activating the key). However, when you actually activate the key the OS gets a license that is set to expire after 180 days. Once you've got the trial license you're not able to extend it any further with the trial key (you may be able to input a retail or OEM key to change it to an unrestricted license).

    The key does not have any activation limits simply because it's the same key that's used for every trial installation, but using it to activate will get you a 180 day license just once.
