    Hi,

    Can you tell me, is it possible to upgrade from Windows 2000 Server
    Standard OEM to Windows Server 2003 (Volume Licence)? or am I going to
    need to re-install the OS from scratch?

    Thanks,

    Dan

  2. Hi Dan,

    I would like to suggest that you call 1-800-426-9400 (select option 4),
    Monday through Friday, 6:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M. (PST) to speak directly to a
    Microsoft licensing specialist. They can answer such questions.

    Worldwide customers can use the Guide to Worldwide Microsoft Licensing
    Sites http://www.microsoft.com/licensing/index/worldwide.asp to find
    contact information in their locations.

    Have a nice day!

    It's not so much of a licencing issue as I have purchased a FULL
    version of W2K3 Server (not an upgrade), I just want to know if it
    will work.

    Thanks.

  4. Hi Dan,

    As you mentioned that the Windows 2003 is Volume License. As I know there
    are some different types of Volume License products, so it will be better
    that you contact the agent or the Microsoft licensing specialist to check
    it.

    The following article just includes the supported paths.
