    Convert trial licence to full licence Win7/2008R2

    Does anyone know if I'd be able to convert trial copies of Windows Server 2008R2/Windows 7 to School agreement licences without breaking anything?

    I'm wanting to crack on building servers/images, and the delivery date for our new Schools Agreement isn't until the end of July.

    Cheers

    You would have to ask Microsoft about this, however I have found that most of the time it is image specific so if you had a trial version that does not incorporate all of the features of the full edition then it would not work.

    However clarify with MS as I said.

    Nope, We are just about to sign for the Schools Agreement.

    We do have some copies of Office on a Select Agreement though.

    OK, It seems That kind of question isn't really on the MS support 'Script" Does anyone know of someone at Microsoft who might be able to help?

    Thanks in advance
