    Just a heads up that cckms.nccu.edu.tw will activate Server Essentials 2012 R2 - just confirmed in a VM.

    If it was a real, successful activation, then just sign off and back in, or reboot, and the watermark will be gone.

    Thanks kelorgo!
    It was a successful activation with the method described here in this post. I assume the watermark stays then.. o_O

    Guys, it is over. So far, there is no longer ways to activate WIN 2012 R 2 anymore. We are all waiting to get a " Harry Potter" miracle:D

    The Harry Potter miracle: Windows Server 2012 R2 (both Standard and Datacenter) is now available on Microsoft DreamSpark.
