    I also tryed this


    1. Run an elevated Command Prompt by finding the Command Prompt icon in Start Menu, right-clicking on it and selecting “Run as Administrator”. (You can also type “command prompt” in the search box, right-click the Command Prompt icon and select “Run as Administrator”.) Click "Continue" in the User Account Control (UAC) pop-up if you have UAC turned on.

    2.  In the command prompt window, type the following command and press Enter:

    slmgr.vbs -ipk <insert your product key here>
    3. Then type the following command in the command prompt window and press Enter:

    slmgr.vbs -ato


    but after that all i get is this



    and it still says its not activated.


    i tryed phone activation but no luck there. Now what.

  • Can you download the beta drivers here?  Note they are 'beta' drivers so they come with no guarantees.

    If you're getting the following options, you can click on the second one to open an IE window that you can then use to download the drivers.

    1. Activate Windows online now --> (this will try to activate with whatever key you already have installed)
    2. Buy a new product key online --> (self-explanatory)
    3. Retype your product key --> (this is the same as "Change product key" and will give you the opportunity to enter a new key if you want to activate with a key that's not yet installed)
    4. Show me other ways to activate --> (this is will give you two more options
            a.  Use my modem to connect directly to the activation service
            b. Use the automated phone system

    Once you've got them installed I assume you'll still need to reactivate.  Let me know if you run into any snags.  Thanks!
