Changing Product Key from OEM to VL - win2k3r2??
This is probably a non-starter but I thought I'd ask anyway...
I have a server which I had to install in a hurry using my Win2k3R2 disks from the partner program which after a little research appears to provide the OEM disks.
Unfortunately it's already too late to do a reinstall otherwise I'm going to be in a world of hurt so I'm looking for options.
First question is whether I can use some of these suggestions to reset the product type and key at the same time:
How to change the Volume Licensing product key on a Windows XP-based or a Windows Server 2003-based computer
Secondly whether or not I can use the win2k3 disk 1 to do a repair (not via the repair console).
Any suggestions welcome...

Am presuming that uses the same method as the link you posted anyway - short of that its a repair install but not sure what that will do with regards to your config.
If those are the only choices then the one you posted first is most likely better.
