    This server is a poweredge 2850, per

    https://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/the-windows-server-repository.49120/

    I have located
    Windows Server 2012 (Standard, Datacenter)
    FILE: en_windows_server_2012_x64_dvd_915478.iso
    SHA-1: D09E752B1EE480BC7E93DFA7D5C3A9B8AAC477BA

    and installed with serial key that ends in -BHGCW-CPKXV, then ran DAZ loader (windows loader 2.2.2). However I get the 0xC004E003 error when trying to activate. Can someone advise what I am doing wrong. Thanks.

    I believe I have tried most of the permutations of switches in DAZ windows loader on the last tab... same activation error. The detail line in DAZ loader does include the "2.2".

    What are my options? Modify the bios to a different SLIC? Lightning bolt from DAZ? Please provide some guidance. thanks.
