Windows 2012 R2–ouch

The other day I downloaded Windows Server 2012 R2. Goodie I thought I’ll download that.  Download worked. Installed 2012 R2 in to a VM and started to configure it tonight. 


Went to activate Windows and it asked for a product key.  No biggie as I grabbed that during the download.


Entered the key and it was rejected.  Huh. Assumed a mistype and tried again. Still rejecting.  Went back to MSDN and got a second key. Rejected again.


Next steps – trash the VM & re-download & rebuild.


I do love doing things a second time for no apparent reason.
