  • Andrew,


    Please delete the installation ID you included in your post.


    It is unnecessary to post as you will NOT be receiving an email or posted response with an activation ID--that would be silly.


    Please keep trying.  What country/region are you in?

  • Well try to call microsoft at 1-888-571-2048.
    Seems as if there are some issues with either their server or your connection. Calling them would be a good idea at this moment. Make sure you activate it before this time expires otherwise after that activating windows becomes a tedious task.
    Hope it helps
