I wanted to test the 2012 Storage Server edition to see if it would be a very streamlined, optimized replacement for Windows Home Server (WHS). Once I installed it, I realized I could not activate using KMS options. I spent about 3 hours searching the forums and reading everything I could find on KMS, Deltas, etc. Deltas didn't work for me, and I thought the SLIC options did not work for 2012, so I initially ignored that option. Eventually I learned that the Dax SLIC option works great for this solution. I was successfully able to patch the BIOS and install the OEM key (Dell/Dell + Storage Server Standard) for a MediaSmart Server EX485. I thought I'd post my experiences to save others from spending the same amount of time searching. If you're interested in installing a CORE version of Windows 2012 Server (Essentials, Storage Server, etc) -- anything that cannot be activated by a KMS server, and you're running a MediaSmart server box, the current Daz loader appears to work great. Good luck with your WHS upgrades!
