I installed Windows 8.1 Pro 64bit. When i went to the Windows Activation settings it showed me this: "The syntax of the file name, the list of names or labels volume is incorrect". With the error code: 0x8007007B

I don't know what to do and this error code mean.
:think:

You maybe installed the wrong version of Windows. If your laptop came with 8.1 Pro N and you installed 8.1 Pro without the N, it will not activate. Download and run ShowKeyPlus. It will show you what version is installed and what version originally came with your laptop. Download the correct Windows 8.1 version and reinstall Windows. If you're using the correct ISO, it will automatically read the key in the BIOS and activate.
