    Just installed 2008 r2 x64 and I can't find the mak key on the website.

    When I request a mak key it only lists one key but I can't RDP into school to try it on the 64bit server, wonder if its the same key for both versions?

    What 32 bit 2008 R2 would that be then?

    For the OP, retail is set as 22nd October, same as Windows 7. VL is probably available now.

    This is still messed up for me, the lovely people on the phone just sent me round in a huge circle back to key activation cos neither of my keys are working..

    Looks like a hack is called for.
