  • Win2k3Server Standard x64 installed with Win2k3Server x86 Retail license strings

    Hi,

    I have to install Windows Server 2003 R2 x64(64 bits) from volume licensing CD, but licensing strings are from Windows Server 2003 R2 x86 Retail/OEM version(32 bits). Local retailer suggested that it's perfectly legal. Is it possible? I think registration/activation will be rejected, as long as Win2k3Servers (x86 vs. x64) are different products . Thanks for future clarifications .

    You need to talk to Microsoft, just to make sure.

      Different product and different keys. I would bet it will give you a problem. Do it right the first time unless of course you want extra install practice.
