I have three new copies of Win2k12 standard that I have tried loading on an HP Gen8 server. They keys - which I'm positive I'm typing the correct key(s) it came with - doesn't work. Did I somehow register the key and "use it"? Can you not load
Win2k12 without a key then add the key over the next week or two?
Or, you can download the evaluation copy and install it. It does not require a key to install, it contains the exact same capabilities as a purchased copy, and a key can be applied to it afterwards, giving you time to get things straightened
out with your vendor.
