Decativating Key for 2nd install


Recommended Posts

Does any one if it is possible to deactivate the installation of home server 2011 and then be able to install it on newer hardware thus reactivating it with the same serial number ? My machine has totally crapped out and i think its the mother board so i want to install my Home Server 2011 on a newer machine built just to be a home server.

How did you get your original license? Is it a OEM version? If it is OEM version you should be able to contact Microsoft and get a new activation key.

Install the OS and opt out to enter a license and complete the install. You can then choose to activate over the phone and speak to someone who can give you a code for activation. Bottom line, you can go ahead and get your server installed.
