Server 2019 Standard Retail Product Key Damaged

Occasional Visitor

Recently purchased a new HP server bundled with Server 2019 Standard.

I was going to activate with the product key but I was rubbing off the sticker to get the key, i invertedly scratched off parts of the key as well.

I have contacted the supplier who i purchased the HP Server bundle and they basically said that i have to either guess the missing number or buy a new license. Both of which dont work for me.


i have been trying for a few days now to get in touch with the right person or team to assist but all i have to show for is hours on hold and today marks the 6 different support person who has called me up to pass me on to the next. 

i  know it not per say a technical problem but i hope that someone else may have had this problem and know how to resolve it. 

appreciate any help

The reseller (HP) is bound under contract with microsoft to provide support for the products they sell so you'll need to contact HP support.
