I had a 2003 server that the power supply was dying on and could not find a replacement so I did an image backup with shadow protect sever as well as ran the VM ware P2V tool and recovered it to a VM.
When I try to log in with the local admin-level account I have it says it's not activated and I can't log in until it is activated. I assume it broke the activation since the VM is a very different hardware profile but I can't even log in at this point.
I tried the solution here but it does nothing after the command is run https://sarithvs.wordpress.com/2014/01/27/this-copy-of-windows-must-be-activated-before-you-can-log-on/
How can I get a 2003 key that I can activate? Would that be possible with a volume license? Or MSDN subscription?
I really don't have much knowledge of the visual studio and MSDN subscriptions.
