Windows 7 will not activate

I am attempting to install Windows 7 Enterprise 64 bit on a "new" IBM server, just to get some service from the unit.  I keep getting messages indicating that the OS is not legitimate.  Haven't had any luck yet.

Please use slmgr.vbs /ato to activate and update KMS client information in order to update values.

 

Do you have a KMS Server available to activate this machine?

If so, follow the instructions.

If not, you'll have to change the Key to an MAK one.
