I'm about to install Windows Server 2008 R2.
I'm concerned when to activate it - before or after I have installed all the hardware drivers?
On one hand new drivers could somehow trigger the activation mechanism to ask for activation again - that's what I want to avoid. On the other hand the hardware vendor_id/device_ids are most likely visible to the activation tool and the hardware configuration won't change no matter what I do with drivers.
What do you suggest the correct course of action?
