    Hi,

    I did a clean install of Windows 8 Pro, and Parallels asked me for the serial before the install began. After the install was completed, Windows was not activated. When trying to activate, Windows said that the serial "did not work". I bought the copy right from the website not 10 minutes before the install took place, so I know it's a valid serial.

    Anyone run into the same issue?

    Thanks!

    Greetings all.

    Please follow these steps:

    Method 1:
    - Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, and then tap Search. Or, if you are using a mouse, point to the lower-right corner of the screen, and then click Search.
    - Type SLUI 03, and then tap or click the displayed icon to open the wizard.
    - Enter activation key.

    Method 2:
    - Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, and then tap Search. Or, if you are using a mouse, point to the lower-right corner of the screen, and then click Search.
    - Type SLUI 04, and then tap or click the displayed icon to open the wizard.
    - Follow the 'Windows Activation' wizard through by selecting your location or nearest location.

    Hope this helps :)

    Hi,

    Thanks for the reply! However, using both of these methods I still receive an error:

    Code:
    0xC004F061

    Description:
    The Software Licensing Service determined that this specified product key can only be used for upgrading, not for clean installations.

    I performed a work-around to get this error to go away (http://www.pchelpforum.com/xf/threads/activate-windows-8-pro-upgrade.141509/) , and Windows successfully activates.
