Convert Eval to Full Version 

Open Powershell as administrator 

Run following command 

Dism /online /get-currentedition 

Dism /online /get-targeteditions 

DISM /Online /Set-Edition:ServerStandard /ProductKey:xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx /AcceptEula 

DISM /Online /Set-Edition:ServerDatacenter /ProductKey:xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx /AcceptEula 

Just overcame this issue. Here are the notes to get an MAK key working on an evaluation ISO. 

Server 2019 Activation Error: Run “slui.exe 0x2a 0xC004F069” to display the error text 

This can be worked around by using two DISM commands. 

Open an elevated command prompt, and type (or copy) DISM.exe /Online /Get-TargetEditions 

Then enter DISM /online /Set-Edition:ServerStandard /ProductKey:ENTER-YOUR-SERIAL-FROM-TABLE /AcceptEula (use key from below table if this is a MAK/Volume license key) 

It may get stuck on the 10% mark for a few 

Use one of the below keys first:
