  • Hi,

     

    You can give microsoft a call to activate the licenses key via phone. Once is activated via phone. You may re-enter the keys again.

    Access the below directory via start > run

    A pop up will display on your screen. Input the keys again and try. :)

    %systemroot%\system32\oobe\msoobe.exe /a
