Activating evaluation copy of Windows Server 2008 Enterprise ?

Q: Activating evaluation copy of Windows Server 2008 Enterprise ?

So it's not Vista, but since there isn't a board for Server 2008, and since Server 2008 is Vista's code, I figured why not.
Does anyone know if the evaluation copy of Server 2008 that can be downloaded from here:

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=13C7300E-935C-415A-A79C-538E933D5424&displaylang=en

can be activated/converted to a fully licensed version without uninstalling? (That is to say, if I enter a product key)

I have having been trying to download Server 2008 from MSDNAA but the software is hosted onsite and we're apparently having trouble with our servers. I can obtain my product key, but the .iso download isn't working. The link I included seems to suggest that the evaluation copy can be activated with a key without uninstalling, but the rep I talked with at MS tech support didn't think so, but she also said she wasn't "technically trained" and she also seemed to think I was talking about Server 2003, no matter how many times I corrected her with 2008.

I thought I'd give the evaluation a try, but the download is almost 3 GB which will take a few hours, so if someone knows it can't be done in the mean time I can cancel the download. (And then, after downloading it, I will have to actually install it which I don't have time for if it is not going to work... Kind of a catch-22--I don't have time for it unless it's going to work, but I'm not going to know unless I take the time to do it. )
Alternatively; if anyone has an .iso or otherwise other copy of Server 2008 Enterprise/Standard that they could ftp or snail mail me (I will send a few dollars via paypal) I would appreciate it. (Obviously I will be using my own key, and not yours)
Thanks,
Mike

Preferred Solution: Activating evaluation copy of Windows Server 2008 Enterprise ?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Activating evaluation copy of Windows Server 2008 Enterprise ?

I've never had an evaluation version yet that I couldn't convert but I haven't played with Server 2008 yet.

I think a few of the Microsoft AV guys are going to be in my lab tomorrow afternoon. I'll ask them and see if they have any info.

Hi everyone,

I downloaded Windows Server 2003 Enterprise 180 day Evaluation and burned the ISO image to a CD.

Because i run Windows XP i wanted to do a new installation at system boot so i could install Server 2003 beside XP on a separate partition.

But when the installation starts and says 'Examining disks...' or 'Please wait...' it never starts again! There is CPU usage but nothing happens on the screen, and I have left it for hours at a time!

Please could someone advise me about this problem? I have tried it on my Desktop and Laptop and it happened on both! Both the Computers are compatible with the minimum requirements. :knock:

Hello,
In the DISA Security Technical Implementation Guides (STIGS) there is a test for event tracing (#V31026). 
The STIG indicates that if you are running Win 2008 the absence of etwenable = false is not a 'finding' because event tracing is enabled by default (on 2008 servers) and it should be enabled and running.
Is this the same for windows 2008 R2 Enterprise Server?
I cannot find the element etwenable in my 2008 R2 Enterprise server test system, it does not exist.
Does that mean the requirement for the STIG is met, and event tracing IS enabled by default on Win 2008 R2 Enterprise Servers?  No further action is required to enable? 

Is there an easy way to verify it actually is enabled?  Check registry value, run script?

Excerpt from the STIG:
Microsoft Dot Net Framework 4.0 STIG
Rule Title:  Event tracing for Windows (ETW) for Common Language Runtime events must be enabled.
STIG ID: APPNET0067  Rule ID: SV-41075r1_rule 
Vuln ID: V-31026
Severity: CAT II Class: Unclass
NOTE:
Beginning with Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008, ETW Tracing is enabled by default and the "etwEnable" setting is not required in order for Event Tracing to be enabled. 
An etwEnable setting of "true" IS required in earlier versions of Windows as ETW is disabled by default.
Thank you,

GPOs probably set correct, firewalls disabled for test purposes. I get this in the event viewer on the 2008 R2 machine (our administrative console server) when trying to connect to the W7 machine:
There was a problem interacting with COM object 833E4010-AFF7-4AC3-AAC2-9F24C1457BCE. An outdated version might be installed, or the component might not be installed at all.
This seems to indicate that Remote Assistance from 2008 R2 is trying to use Help & Support (the guid) instead of MSRA. Bug or am I missing something?

No, you cannot upgrade from the Windows 8.1 Enterprise 90 Day Evaluation to a full version of Windows 8.1 Enterprise. The excerpt from the
Windows 8.1 Enterprise 90 Day Evaluation page states under Activation and Usage Guidance:

Following the evaluation period, you will need to replace the operating system on your test computer and reinstall all your programs and data. It is not possible to upgrade the evaluation to a licensed working version of Windows 8.1 Enterprise. A clean installation
is required.

A:I have just installed Windows 10 Enterprise 2016 LTSB Evaluation

Uhh...gee...Erez: think about what evaluation means. Try it for a while and if you like it, BUY a real copy. When the timeline runs out, you may be able to rearm (restart the 90-day clock) as many as three more times. But after that, you must uninstall, then reinstall to start another evaluation. It's illegal to convert an evaluation copy into a permanent copy, because it violates Microsoft's licensing terms. 'Nuff said.

Hey everyone, I made a dumb mistake and I really need some help fixing it, if at all possible.

I'm helping a friend with her computer, which came installed with Windows 8 Pro, but it's hard drive went bad. I got her a new hard drive, but when I installed it and grabbed a Windows 8 disk, I accidentally installed the Windows 8 Enterprise Evaluation instead...

Now I know in Windows 8, the product key is now stored in the BIOS. Does this mean that her old product key was overwritten with the enterprise evaluation one now? I tried formatting the hard drive and using a Windows 8 Pro disk to reinstall, but when it was installed, at the bottom right of the desktop view it once more said that there were 90 days left on the enterprise evaluation version activation. Is there any possible way to go back to Windows 8 Pro, and have that original product key be detected?

Thank you in advance!

A:[SOLVED] Accidentally Installed Windows 8 Enterprise Evaluation...

1. The installation of the evaluation edition will not have overwritten the licence key embedded in the firmware - UEFI. It cannot do so - that key which is not the product key as we have always known it - is installed in the firmware by the OEM manufacturer

2. My opinion is that you should make the new hard drive 0ne partition of unallocated space - using the installation disc - the install of 8 will then itself partition the drive to create the EFI partition - FAT (not NTFS) from which the windows boots - and hands control to the Boot Manager to complete the process - the MSR partition - the main C partition and the recovery partition - not the OEM install recovery partition but the one from which the advanced boot options etc are accessed

3. I suspect but I have to admit that I am not 100% certain that the problem has been caused by the drive still having partitions on it when the install of the 8 pro was made

Hello,

Description:

DNS name does not exist.

I'm using an wireless card called Canyon CN-WF511 802.11g Turbo Wireless PCI Card. The problem could be that it hasn't got the right drivers for windows 7 yet, cause i was only able to download and install the drivers from the official site for Windows Vista..

I also tried the calling activation procedure but the automatic phone said that they couldn't verify the code i gave up, but i don't want to contact with the support cause i dont have a good reason to let them activate it..

So im not sure if it does work, but at least i want to give it a try to activate if via internet.

A:Problem activating Windows 7 Enterprise

When you attempt to activate an enterprise version of Windows Vista or Windows 7...it does a DNS search trying to find the network's KMS (key management server) to activate against. In your case, you likely aren't on a local network with a KMS server so that activation mechanism is not an option.

Therefore, you need to get a MAK key (multiple activation key). Then, when you go to activate Windows 7..you click on change product key and input the MAK key. It will then validate the key and immediately attempt to activate it on the Internet.

Welcome to the forums,

Not a bsod master here but you should try to update the driver found there (wfplwfs.sys). Java was probably just using the drivers (graphics drivers are also used depending on the java program) when the error occured.

It's not always a good idea to run on the standard/stock drivers that a fresh windows has installed. Update all the drivers you can update + java to the latest version and see if the problem still occurs.

Good luck

Hello Jeremy, and welcome to Seven Forums.

The watermark is there since Windows 7 is still not a retail version and is still in testing, hence the evaluation copy watermark.

There are hacks out there that can remove the watermark, but I would strongly advise against using them. They usually will cause Compatibility Mode to no longer work properly, and can cause other unknown quirks.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

From what you say, what you are doing sounds illegal!

We can't help you with that.

Closing thread for now!

My Windows is activated and the watermark was removed but soon after a restart the watermark was back. Is there a way to remove it?

You are not the first with this problem:

However, I am not sure the problem has been solved yet.

Why is your Windows 8 Start logo reversed (compared with )?

I installed and I am using at this moment the Windows 8 Release Preview Evaluation Copy that I downloaded from Microsoft. Now....what's going to happen to people like me? Is this version going to be deleted, will not be able to use Windows Update in the future? Are we going to be forced to buy a Windows 8 copy in order to keep on going? Can anyone tell me?

Hello
 
My Windows 8 Enterprise Edition that came with my Lenovo computer has completely failed, none of the automatic recovery options work, so I need to do a reinstall or repair. All my data is backed up now so Im happy to wipe everything If need be.
 
I have looked on the lenovorecovery.com and I can order a recovery disk for a £35 'admin fee'. However, being a cheapskate, and also wanting it up and running ASAP, I'm wondering whether I can use the Enterprise Edition Evaluation ISO and do a fresh install.
 
However, I'm worried though that if I do that I will lose my license and it will actually become an evaluation instead of the licensed Windows that was on there before. Apparently Enterprise edition does not have a product key, it's just sort of built in. Will the evaluation edition recognise that it is already licensed if I do a repair with it, or will it just wipe any trace of the pre-existing license?
 
Thanks!

Tell the "admin" to stick their 35 quid. ... Be pushy and get that disk for free.

I have a Toshiba Satellite M115-S3094 running Windows XP.

I havent picked it up in awhile and when I turn it on it says "The copy of Windows must be activated with Microsoft before you can log on. Do you want to activate now?"

I clikc "Yes" and then a pop up states "Windows is already activated" I click "OK" and then computer restarts and brings me back to the "The copy of Windows must be activated....."

Anyway I can restore this computer to factory setting to get rid of this problem?

Or is there another was to fix this problem? I dont have any of the cds that came with the computer.

Thanks

I am getting win7 Ultimate (it should be in the mail right now), I install the win7 evaluation copy with a build I did back in the summer & installed win7 evaluation copy with a clean install. Now I want to do another clean install to get rid of the junk I have collected over the last couple months & because the copy will expire in a couple months. So my question is what is the best way to remove the evaluation copy & install the retail copy without losing all of my programs, drivers & user settings. I was thinking clone the area I want to save & then after the install happens merge the two back. Anyone have a better way or will the above work

Thank,

A:win7 evaluation copy to a retail copy install

You can't clone and merge the two OS's. If you clean install by booting the new DVD to do a Custom install with Drive Tool formatting, you must reinstall your programs.

Many have reported excellent results doing an in-place Upgrade from the RC to any version using this workaround: Upgrade the Windows 7 RC to any retail version Icrontic Tech

You could try this to see if performance suits you, and if not then do a clean install.

I am working on computer for a coworker. He recently migrated a questionable Windows 7 installation to an SSD and started getting BSOD's pretty frequently. He had been wanting to try Windows 8.1 for a while, so I suggested he try the enterprise evaluation to see if it would work for him.

First I attempted to install from a thumb drive and received NTFS_FILE_SYSTEM errors during installation. I tried again with a DVD and received the error once, but was then able to install. All the while I was doing a custom installation and deleting the old volume and creating a new one for the installation.

After the first or second boot to desktop, it BSOD'ed again, but I didn't catch the error code. The last time it happened I recorded an error code of KERNEL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURE. This was after installing Nvidia Drivers from the Nvidia website.

I'm suspecting this is some sort of problem with the SSD itself, as it has persisted through the fresh OS installation. I have attached the SF diagnostic tool file.

Thanks for the help!
Dave
