I followed this guide http://www.mcflymethod.com/indexb.asp?txtscreen=1920
to remove the Activation from windows 2008.
But... I think its to much work so i made this batchfile for automated removal.http://www.axzell.com/scripts/server2k8 ... emoval.cmd
Download and run as Administrator (or you can modify the file with your own admin account).
I have tested this file on 2 of my 2008 servers and they both work after i turned the clock forward to 30 oktober 2009. Windows update works too
, and the most important thing, the roles manager work!
