    Yes,May be there is some bugs in Windows 8 Eneterprise Activation...

    Try in Command Promt ( Run As Administrator), Then Type  slmgr.vbs /ipk xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx and check whether the product is activated or not.

  • I'm moving this to the Windows 8 Installation, Setup, and Deployment forum, as it's off topic in the MSDN, TechNet, and Expression Profile and Recognition System Discussions forum, and others may better benefit from the answers if it's in the correct forum.
