Windows 8 Activation Error: DNS name does not exist Error Code: 0x8007232B

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 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! 🙂
