Hi,

We have purchased a server and a windows 2008 license, but because the information given by the reseller was very very confusing (*) we did not enter the serial number at installation time.

*we were given a link to a MS customer account were we where supposed to get a Volume licence for this along with the additional licences we got, but process is quite bad imho.

So when we finally figured which one was our license number I proceeded to the activatation tool assuming it would require our serial and activate the install based on it...

...but the thing is it never asked for the serial yet it said something like 'Activation was succesful' and the Genuine Windows logo appeared, there is no "X days rmaining for activation", and basically everything looks fine... but since I didn´t enter the serial I am worried it will cause trouble in the future (i.e. complain about activation overnight)

Before I activated it there was a Product Key on screen, and there still is, but AFAIK that is not the same as the Serial Number, right?

What I am doing wrong here??

regards.
