Windows 2012 R2–ouch

Richard Siddaway Richard Siddaway Profile: Richard Siddaway

The other day I downloaded Windows Server 2012 R2. Goodie I thought I’ll download that. Download worked. Installed 2012 R2 in to a VM and started to configure it tonight.

Went to activate Windows and it asked for a product key. No biggie as I grabbed that during the download.

Entered the key and it was rejected. Huh. Assumed a mistype and tried again. Still rejecting. Went back to MSDN and got a second key. Rejected again.

Next steps – trash the VM & re-download & rebuild.

I do love doing things a second time for no apparent reason.
