    Is it possible to in place upgrade the 2008 r2 evaluation version to a full
    licensed version?

    according to the download site: "you will need to uninstall the evaluation
    software and reinstall a fully-licensed version of Windows Server 2008 R2."

    yet elsewhere I see that Windows Server 2008 R2 RC to Windows Server 2008 R2
    RTM In-Place Upgrade is supported

    We are able to pre-purchase the licences, so obviously we don't want to
    uninstall a good setup if we get one going

    regards

  2. Hello Frank,

    If this is the RTM version you should be ablt to use the system properties,
    scroll down to "change produckt key", add the full licensed key and activate
    the software.

    Best regards

  4. Hello Marc B.,

    No, only as 64bit version. All new released versions will come only as 64bit,
    as you can see with exchange 2007/2010, SBS / EBS versions, 2008 R2 etc.

    Best regards
