Windows Server 2016 Standard Evaluation – “This Edition Cannot Be Upgraded”

I got this error when trying to enter a product key via the GUI, “This Edition Cannot Be Upgraded”. Not sure why. However, I was able to run the following command via command prompt to activate my product key. It does take about 5 minutes to complete the process then your asked to reboot.

UNRAID – Increase Storage for Windows 10 VM

  1. Go to your UNRAID GUI
  2. Click on VMs
  3. Make sure the VM you want to make the modifications to is stopped
  4. Click the Name of the VM
  5. Disk devices should display
  6. Under capacity there should be links to the drive you want to add space too, click that link and enter the new capacity. Hit Enter.
  7. Start the VM
  8. Now reboot the VM (this is necessary for it to find the new space available – not sure why)
  9. Log in to your Windows VM
  10. Open Computer Management
  11. Go to Disk Management
  12. You can now expand the partition to its capacity
