    Hi all.

    I tried installing a server core 2008 on VMWare Server. It's running, and I tried to activate it with Daz's loader, but it says incompatible OS. I also tried using the cmdline, to no avail. I heard somewhere Daz's loader has to be run in compatibility mode, but I have no idea on how to do that in the Server Core cmdline...

    Anyone any idea how I can get this Core Install activated? :)

    There are no OEM:SLP keys to activate the Core editions... so no not possible at this moment

    Paranoid?
    Anyway you are talking BS.... this is the KMS activator by ZWT, no trojan found (At least my AV didn't flag it)

    oh, and btw, he quoted a message posted by someone else... why would he do that if it is only to advertise the crack?

    lol, paranoid indeed, I did join today, but I quoted someone else, that link is not mine but Riddick91's ;-) And my english isn't bad enough to make it seem realistic :p

    must say though: cool forum :) hadn't seen it before, but did know some of the referenced sites and cracks like hazar 'n such.

    I used both the R2 SLP keys from the Sticky and the Dell Cert to activate STD and ENT in Hyper-V VM's.
    So it should work on real Hardware too.
