    Can't Activate 32 bit


    "Windows can't activate right now Try activating later." Been getting this for hours. Is there any way other than contacting Microsoft Customer service & Support?

    You might have a network driver issue since you couldn't upload to here and this problem too. Try to get that zip uploaded in the other thread and hold off on this for now. You have something like 30 days to activate.

    EDIT: Got a compatibility warning. I selected that it was running correctly.

    Sure, but see the crash dump thread and my response, before doing so.

    Once to Windows, install the above Intel driver and the J-Micron driver I linked you too also.

    Hi there
    How come you even GET an activation message for W8 CP. Did you at install time enter the official product key from the MS site or did you "Skip" that.

    Try out the new System Refresh feature and see what happens.

    (Back up any USER data you might have before you start however).

    Cheers

    I used it. Didn't see skipping as an option.

    EDIT: It was my clock! I was living three years in the past.
