    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 says that key is added but then 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.
