Today I’ve installed Windows 8 on my laptop. When I tried to activate Windows, I received the following error: “DNS name does not exist. Error code 0x8007232B”. The product key is right, so what goes wrong…
This issue was documented in this Microsoft Support article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929826 for previous versions of Windows but also applies to Windows 8.
After reading this support article, I’ve used the following command:
slmgr.vbs /ipk xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx
Typer your personal product key. Now you could activate your Windows 8 machine! 🙂
