    Do you have an Un-Used windows 8.1 product key you could use to activate a windows 8.1 installation ???

    If so what edition is the New product Key for ??

    Download that edition of windows 8.1 - but download the x86 version...

    Please run a WDT diagnostic report so that we can check what's kicking it out.

    hi superfly .
    done .. did an diagnostic with your tool.
    hope it shows anything.

    i also started msconfig and looked at the services started and stopped.

    Seems fine to me apart from not being licenced - I see you do have Processor Architecture: x86. The only other unsual thing is the product ID has a unusually many zero's.. but noy here nor there... - licence service is available and no corrupt files - so you could try manual activation.

    What error do you get when you run the following in command prompt as admin.

    slmgr.vbs /ato

    (note the space before the / )

    Well that explains the strange ID and the fact that you have an OEMM key installed but it's not in the firmware... That key may have been used on another machine and subsequenly got blocked - someone messed up at the factory and assume gave you a retail key instead(?) - which can't be installed - is that correct? - what happens if you do it via cmd prompt admin:
    slmgr /ipk xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx (ie the retail )
