Media for Server 2003 R2

I'm upgrading the SAS drives on our Dell PowerEdge 2900.

The server has a sticker on it with the product key.

Unfrotuantely I do not have the OEM media to reinstall the OS using the key supplied with the server.

I've tried changing the PID in the setupp.ini file on a volume disc but the key is still not being accepted.

Is there a way around this? No.. I'm not talking any illegal methods to use the key!

Your best course of action is to use the Windows Server Fulfillment site. It would help if you had a machine with a Server 2008 COA, but I am not entirely certain how exactly the site works. You might be able to get the media with just a 2003 COA.

On the following link, click the plus [+] in the "Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) Customers" section.
