Windows 2008 R2 media

By jimmy-jam ·
Hoping someone can give me a definitive answer as to whether or not I can convert a 180 trial of 2008 server to production by simply adding a license key. I have a server that, due to some unforeseen circumstances, I had to downgrade to 2003 before I put it in production a couple of years back. The application that it runs has now been patched to correct the issues it has with 2008 and I need to upgrade. The issue is, I don't have the media to do the upgrade. I've been asking around and have been getting conflicting reports as to whether converting a trial copy to production by merely providing a valid license key would work. Does anyone know the answer to this for sure?

P.S. before anyone says it, going to 2012 is not an option. This is a medical device and is regulated by the FDA. It must be 2008.
