Windows Server 2012 license key waste?


  • Hi, 

    I just downloaded the ISO of Windows 2012 and begun to install it as a virtuali machine on my lab-computer. In diffrence from Win8 it demanded me to enter the Serial key at once. Despite I just wanted just to try it out. So I'll effectivly burn a license key now on just well nothing.

    Is it supposed to be that way? What can I do if i just want to set up a system for test? Even better if I want to test to set up a system that needs 4-5 servers ( maybe an AlwaysOn cluster) This smells license waste long way.

    MCITP, MCP, VCP, AASE & Insane!
