    Good Afternoon all,

    I have a Windows server 2008 key, i have checked in VAMT and shows as

    but when i try to activate the key windows says it isnt valid.

    I suspect that it may be an issue between 2008 and 2008 r2

    as i have another key that VAMT shows as

    am i right in this assumption?

    if so is there anything i can do? do i need to fish around for a 2008 iso (like searching for windows 8.0 iso instead of 8.1)

    Thanks
