    Note that you may start this message if you simply changed a significant number of hardware items, and the operating system believes it is installed on a different machine. 

    Hope this helps,

  • Well.. it only happened after you proceed to patch a windows update without inserting a valid product key.. Once the blue print is on the desktop screen..  based on microsoft best practices.. kindly contact microsoft contact and either you purchase a licenses key.. and re-validate the keys..

    What is a Server Core installation?

    The Server Core installation option is an option that you can use for installing Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 R2. A Server Core installation provides a minimal environment for running specific server roles, which reduces the maintenance and management requirements and the attack surface for those server roles. A server running a Server Core installation of Windows Server 2008 supports the following server roles:

    • Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS)

    • Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services (AD LDS)

    • DHCP Server

    • DNS Server

    • File Services

    • Hyper-V

    • Print Services

    • Streaming Media Services

    • Web Server (IIS)

    A server running a Server Core installation of Windows Server 2008 R2 supports the following server roles:

    • Active Directory Certificate Services

    • Active Directory Domain Services

    • Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services (AD LDS)

    • DHCP Server

    • DNS Server

    • File Services (including File Server Resource Manager)

    • Hyper-V

    • Print and Document Services

    • Streaming Media Services

    • Web Server (including a subset of ASP.NET)

  • Why are you bringing up Server Core?  That was not a part of the original question.

    And if you read http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserver2008/en/us/WS08-product-activation.aspx, you'll see that services do NOT get shut down.  They actually continue to run.
