Windows 7: Unable to activate Windows 8.1 Pro x64

23 Jun 2015   #1

Windows 8.1 Pro x64
Unable to activate Windows 8.1 Pro x64


I purchased a Lenovo y510p which came installed with Windows 8.1 (not pro). Later I decided to upgrade to Windows 8.1 pro but at that time I didn't activated it. So, right now an "activate windows" mark is coming on lower down side.
So firstly, I quickly bought a genuine windows 8.1 pro x64 key. But now, when I try to activate the computer through activation center, then it says that this key won't work. Moreover when I try the "slmgr.vbs -ipk <key>" method, then it gives an error saying: "Error: 0xC004E016 On a computer running Microsoft Windows non-core edition".

Please let me know that how do I fix these errors and successfully activate my computer.

Where did you purchase your new 8.1Pro Key from?
From what I can see, the current Key appears to have been declared 'expired' - I'm not sure whether this means that it's out of the grace period, or that the Key itself is wrong.

You should really be asking this question on our sister forum - - where people with more experience of Win8.1 upgrade problems may be able to help better than I can.

I actually got a subscription to MSDN and from there I issued this key. BTW Can you tell me which key you are referring to as expired (asking because I've tried like, tons of keys, since on MSDN we get keys of every type of windows xyz)
