Windows Server 2003 R2 Customer Preview Program (CPP)

At the end of last week, the long awaited R2 Site on was launched where you can now also register for the R2 Beta 2 Customer Preview Program. I'll be blogging a lot more about R2 in the coming weeks, but for now, have a browse through the links above to find some great information about this important update to Windows Server 2003.


  • somebody has a working serial for windows 2003 R2? I received one from MS but it is not working :-(

  • My understanding is that the product keys for R2 Beta through the CPP will only work against the _evaluation_ copy of Windows Server 2003 slipstreamed with SP1 (Build 1830). I'm using an internal build rather than through the CPP, and that was the case when I built mine. There should be a suitable evaluation build somewhere on the CPP site. Hope this helps. John.

  • John,

    I didn't find any suitable trial but i've started downloading the trial w2k3+sp1. Hope this will work...


  • Your blog is really very interesting.
