    Windows Activation failure

    I saw a thread Windows 8 Activation error "0x8007007b" that said type Licensingdiag.exe -report %userprofile%\desktop\report.txt -log %userprofile%\desktop\
    so I did and this is what I got in the report file from the desktop

    <ProductName>Windows 8 Pro</ProductName>
    <TimeZone>Eastern Standard Time(GMT-04:00)</TimeZone>
    <ActiveSkuDescription>Windows(R) Operating System, VOLUME_KMSCLIENT channel</ActiveSkuDescription>

    Win7 64-bit and Win8 32-bit in VM (+ others in VM)

    The Key in use is a Volume License KMS Key
    This requires activation against a private server, rather than Microsoft's public ones.
    Your machine appears to have shipped with Windows 7 pre-installed - which means that you should have a retail license for Windows 8
    You need to change the installed Key to the one from your Windows 8 pack, and activate that.
