Awesome, thanks! :) Waiting to see if it comes now... Anyone know if these discs are the same as the retail discs and the key entered determines whether the installation is a trial or retail, or if they're like the Server 2003 trials where the disc is actually slightly different and will only accept trial keys. I guess they must be desperate to sell Home Server if they've had to start sending out free stuff! :P

I'm almost certain they are like the Server 2003 Trials, since they are based on SBS 2003 anyway. There were differences (small, but noticeable) between my Evaluation ISO that I got on the Home Server beta, and a Retail one.

It's the OS, though I'm sure there may be add-ons for it included in the kit.

I have now ordered a copy. Can't wait until they arrive.

That'd be the OEM Version, not the trial described here. But yeh, the Install is quite long-winded really.

It probably won't be too hard. You could simply remove the timebomb from the setup and repack it.
