LOTS you are not telling. Is this an official retail version from Technet or an evaluation version? Did you enter a real product key on install? If it is a real version and you entered a proper product key, as soon as you boot up the first time, Win8 Pro activates automatically. Check control panel-system and security-system and you will see towards the bottom that Win8 was activated.

Are your running TechNet/MSDN, or the leaked builds. If leaked, I can't tell you because it's considered piracy. If TechNet/MSDN, you should have been given keys along with the download.

If it's legit, it should auto activate, or you can call Microsoft.

If it's a pirated, cracked or leaked copy....consider not doing this. It will not only get you kicked off this forum, but as you can see from the above, these versions have been modified and don't work exactly like the real thing. Consider that people could put spyware, password loggers, whatever into this hacked copy of the code. I wouldn't touch it with a 10ft pole.

If you got it from someone (so not a corporate install), and you don't have a TechNet or MSDN subscription, you can't activate. Those are the only official public ways you could acquire a legit product key at the moment, and will be until October 26th, when you can purchase one from a store (online or otherwise).
