    If one purchased an OEM version of Win 2003 Svr Std R2 (32 bit) within the
    past six months, can they use their existing product license key to upgrade
    to the 64 bit version - assuming they can acquire the media from their
    vendor? TIA ...

  2. No. OEM licensing is quite restrictive. You _might_ be able to talk your OEM
    vendor into a swap, but I doubt it. And the license keys are definitely
    different between x86 and x64 for Server 2k3.
