KMS Client Setup Keys

By default, Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 operating systems use KMS for activation. You can change the activation method of a KMS client to MAK and then change it back by installing the corresponding product key. Table 2 lists the KMS client setup keys for Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 volume editions.
