Welcome to Tom's Hardware:
The error code 0xC004E003 simply means that the Software Licensing Service reported that license evaluation failed.
Here is what you need to do.
1. Press the WINKEY+R to bring up the Run dialog box.
2. Type SLUI 4 in the box and press OK. This will start the Telephone Activation Wizard.
3. Select your country in the drop down menu and click the Next Button. Follow the instructions on the screen and call the number that is shown there.
Follow the recorded instructions and when the telephone activation fails, stay on the line and an Activation Representative will answer. Just describe the problem you are experiencing and they will manually activate the system for you.
Hope this helps.
