Windows Server 2008: alternate actvation method not available

You may encounter a problem with activation of Windows Server 2008: there's no internet connection in place (for example, a virtual machine with internal connect only) and the link to alternate activation methods either does not appear or disabled (not clickable):

The reason is: you have no or wrong product key entered. As long as you do not change the product key you won't be able to activate you copy of Windows Server 2008 by phone.

So enter the valid product key and retry.
