    Windows couldn't be activated


    My computer came with pre-installed Windows 8 Single Language but I can't active it. I tried all solutions on google but nothing useful. I contacted Microsoft but they didn't response. My error code: 0xC004F074.

    It may be same thing they do here when buying new computer. Windows installed but not activated until you pay extra for them. Than you get registration number, sticker and bill of sale for Windows. Most laptops come with only Linux on them so they are quite cheaper than with OEM Windows. Bill of sale has to have Part with windows separately and/or clearly state if Windows is included in the price.
