Is anyone else having problems with the Server 2008 R2 beta refusing to activate? Using the key provided on the Microsoft site I always get "the product key you typed cannot be used to activate Windows on this computer". Yet the site clearly states "Any edition of Windows Server 2008 R2 Beta may be installed without activation and evaluated for an initial 30 days. If you need more time to evaluate Windows Server 2008 R2 Beta, the initial 30 day evaluation can be extended to August 1st (at which time the OS will become inoperable) by entering the product key below for your selected edition."

Bit puzzled by this one.

You dont need to activate. The key extends your trial to the date.
