I did not create a recovery disk and now my windows keep asking to be activated.

Windows 8 was already activated on my system at the time of purchase. About a week ago i started seeing a message advising it is not activated. There is no product key on the bottom of the machine neither was there a key on the battery.The only product key found was under Pc Info and that turns out to be a manufacturer's key so there is nothing i can do with that. Worst part is I'm not in a location where a Recovery disk can be shipped. Any ideas as to how i can get this sorted out?

  1. IF the Internet based activation does not work... they is/was an option to do it phone based... they will take the key from the label.

    You can also get the "real" key by using Belarc Advisor.
  2. Open CMD as administrator
    Type slui 4 and press enter
    This will guide you through the phone activation procedure.
    Follow the on screen commands to get Windows 8 fully activated.
    Keep us posted.
