  • Since telephone activation (not validation) would be necessary, please review: Use the automated phone system to activate. However, validation would require an active internet connection in order to communicate with Microsoft's product key validation servers.

  • You certainly do not need to be on the internet to activate,  You can activate by phone by doing the following:

    Click on the Start button and in the Search box, type SLUI 4 and press Enter.  Follow the instructions to activate or just wait to speak to a live operator.

     

    And you can also post a MGA Diagnostic here to confirm the OS validity:

    MGA Diagnostic Report:

    To properly analyze and solve problems with Activation and Validation, we need to see a full copy of the diagnostic report produced by the MGADiag tool (download and save to desktop - http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012 )

    Once downloaded, run the tool.
    Click on the Continue button, after a short time, the Continue button will change to a Copy button.
    Click on the Copy button in the tool (ignore any error messages at this point), and then paste (using either r-click/Paste, or Ctrl+V ) into your post.
    One Issue Per Thread:

    Most Activation and Validation issues look the same, on the surface, but can have many different causes and fixes. This is why we ask for a diagnostic report and this is also why we ask that you create your own thread for your issue (in other words, don't post your issue in another person's thread). 

    It just becomes too complicated to try to troubleshoot multiple different issues in the same thread.
