How to activate Windows 8 with multiple activation key
  

Last week Microsoft Launched Windows 8 Enterprise evaluation edition for 90 days trial. Many users already downloaded and installed it on their system. But there are many systems among them who stuck with activation. Hence, i thought here to share the steps for activating Windows 8 Enterprises with Multiple Activation Key (MAK).
  • First of all you will need to get the activation key from Microsoft-hosted activation and validation services online (MSDN or TechNet).

  • Once you get the activation keys, start with opening Command Prompt from start menu, right click CMD and run it as Administrator.


  • Now type the following command and press enter:
    Quote:
    slmgr.vbs /ipk (xxxxx)
    NOTE: (xxxxx) is your activation codes without bracket.


  • You will get a screen saying that your activation was successfully. Click Ok and return back to command prompt.

  • Now type the following command and hit Enter
    Quote:
    slmgr.vbs /ato

Thats it. You are done. Now reboot the system once to take the changes.

Best part of these steps is when you run the second command mentioned above, it also removes the "Windows 8 Enterprises" Watermark from the right bottom corner as well. Just be sure to enter the codes and product key correctly.
