Have you just installed Windows Server 2012 and it keeps on rebooting every now and then? It’s most likely because you haven’t activated it.
Here’s how to activate your copy:
Press the Windows Button, search for the Control Panel and open it.
Change the view to small icons
Open Action Center
Press Go to Windows activation
Press Activate and then reboot your server.
If you have downloaded the evaluation copy, you will receive 180-days of evaluation time once activated!
Just a heads up 🙂
