Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 – Problems with activation

The new versions of Windows are out, and with them come a whole new set of little challenges.

So let’s start from the beginning.

You just installed your new OS and you get a DNS error when trying to activate it.

Well, here’s how you go about it.

 

Open a command line with Administrative privileges and type:

slmgr.vbs /ipk followed by your serial key. Press enter and there you have it. A brand new activated Windows.

Enjoy.
