  • Hi,

    Thanks for your question.

    We can first type the command slmgr /dlv on the CMD to check if this OS version is an OEM version. If OEM, we cannot go ahead to next, because of the key is bind with the original server hardware, can not transfer the key into VM.

    We could this information in the option “Product Key Channel” as below.


    If it isn’t OEM, we can try to use this key to activate in the VM to see if it works.

    Hope this can help. I look forward to hearing your good news.

    If you have any question or concern, please feel free to let me know.

    Best regards,

    Michael
