Have you just installed Windows Server 2012 and it keeps restarting? 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.

Control Panel

Change the view to small icons

Control Panel - View small icons

Open Action Center

Control Panel - Action Center

Press Go to Windows activation

Control Panel Action Center Windows Server 2012

Press Activate and then reboot your server.

Activate Windows Server 2012

If you have downloaded the evaluation copy, you will receive 180-days of evaluation time once activated!

Just a heads up 🙂
