Evaluating any version of Windows Server 2008 R2 software does not require entering a product key, however will require activation within 10 days.
There's no need to enter in a product key for the 2008 R2 evaluation. The product key is embedded. Connect to internet to complete activation.

Hi,
Did you download the evaluation version?
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=11093
Also, the error code occurs because the incorrect permissions are set on the Tokens.dat file or this file is corrupted.
You could refer to the following link for resolution:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-US/troubleshoot/windows-server/deployment/error-0xc004e002-during-activation
Hope above information can help you.
