Windows SKU

    General discussion

  • I did some research but couldn't find the exact solution to my problem. So, here it goes:

    I'm a student, for one of the projects that I have to do for school I had to download Windows Server 2008. We get that for free on dreamspark. So I basically downloaded Windows Server 2008 R2 Datacenter 64-bit. The problem I am now is the fact that for some reason my product key does not math the curent windows SKU. But how do I get the right one? Since I got it off the site dreamspark they send you the product key per email. Windows won't start normally (I use Windows 8.1), instead I get the Windows Server installation screen all the time. So I'm kinda stuck there. What to do?

    1: I want to be able to use Windows 8.1, just normal using the computer.

    2: I want Windows 2008 Server to get off my computer.
