  1. Unable to activate Windows


    So recently I upgraded my computers motherboard and CPU and when turning it on I got a activate windows logo on the bottom right of my screen. So I used the activation troubleshoot and that did not work and I didn't remember my windows key so I went out and bought a new key and that key isnt working as well. What do I do?

    :)

  3. Unable to Activate Win 8

    I got Win 8 isntalled on my file server, but I am unable to activate it with the key. Says the key is invalid. Since I work at microsoft I got a retail version from the employee store. I have been doing some reading, and to be able to activate Win8 with the key there needs to be a previous version of Windows installed for it to work. WTF, so you can't do clean installs?

    And the box says nothing about Upgrade version. Straight Windows 8 Pro.
