Server 2012 crashed and is now as much use as a server as my toaster please help


  • I recently installed server 2012 as a VM on a Dell Poweredge server machine and got it up and running as a file server, i left files transferring to it overnight and when i cam back i found that it had crashed and was refusing to reboot as there wasnt enough space on the disk which was odd as i had move 620gb onto a 2tb partition of a 4 tb hard drive but i eventually managed to fight my way in.

    When i got in i was confronted with the server manager and literally nothing else!

    i have not start bar no access to the tile screen or command prompt, it isnt reading from disk drives so i cant repair it.

    I am going to have to wipe it then reinstall it but is there anyway that i can reclaim my licence key from it as my company doesnt have another?
