Specs: Windows 2003 Server

I bought a copy of W2K3 Server Premium Edition to install on a newly purchased (but used) Dell PowerEdge 2850 server. When using the Dell Server Installation program, the install did not like the version of W2K3 server I was attempting to install, so I downloaded an evaluation version of W2K3 Server Enetrprise from Microsotf's website. The Server installation completed without a hitch.
Now my Evaluation period is soon to expire, so I'm wondering if I can easily convert my Server install from the Evaluation copy to the prchased copy.

Thanks in advance,

I don't believe you can upgrade an evaluation version.

I'm not sure what's wrong with the 2003 server edition you bought, but if the eval version installs, so should that one. If it doesn't, call MS's support people.
