8.1 Activation Problem

    Question

  • I'm having a problem installing 8.1. Build 9431. I have it all installed but the problem is in activating it. How do you do it?

    I've investigated more and I think the lenovo WS520 is not validating on the internet.

    But, Preview or Enterprise Preview? They have different keys to get activated.
