    Hi all

    Have a VERY old server that Im trying to put an NTP server on
    Its an old HP Dl360 G2!!! Its OLD

    Anyway - trying to install server 2003

    I have amn oem key and hash checked unaltered MS versions of Server with SP1 Enterprise

    How is this activated - is it by inserting the slp string in the bios???

    Have done that before for XP I think and windows 7 - is it a similar process with server 2003

    Does anybody know or remember
    Thanks

    You don't need to activate Windows Server 2003. All you need is a valid CoA.

    Nope. It's not the sticker. On the sticker you have only the serial.
    If you have the SERIAL, that's all you need for installation.
