Hi ilurikashyap , 


Welcome to the Community Forums. 


Would the same Windows 8 version came with the original system preloaded image? 

Did you manage to get the error code during activation?


Product key are securedly embedded on the chips of the motherboard as it no longer shows on any stickers or label unlike Windows 7. This key should automatically activate.


Activation 3.0 was implented with the start of WIndows 8 and above to digitally secure the keys into the microsoft database.  You can try to phone activation to refresh the Microsoft database or call in Microsoft 1-800-642-7676  informing them of network issue that may have triggered it. 


Update us how things go.
