About Windows 8 Activation
Unlike Windows 7, KMS activation is not a built-in service in Windows 8. In order to make use of KMS activation, servers able of KMS activation are required. This far, two servers have been identified and assisted a lot of users in activating Windows 8 online, but unfortunately they are currently down.
This is the reason why none of the KMS activators for Windows 8 are working at this time. Users are now waiting for new servers in order to activate Windows 8 via KMS.
Will Daz�s Windows Loaders Work?
No. Daz�s Windows 7 Activators was not designed to work on Windows 8.

No. There are no publicly accessible KMS servers available at this time.
Will the KMS Activation Remove the Activation Watermark?
Yes it will.
Can I Activate my Copy of Windows 8 After Installing Windows Media Center (WMC)?
Do not use the released key to install Windows Media Center. Users cannot activate Windows 8 over public KMS servers when using the Windows Media Center key.
Is a Microsoft Host Key Available?
No, this has yet to be released to the public.
If activated, will I Loose Activation in 30 Days?
No. If you activated earlier, your copy of Windows will remain activated for 180 days. The 30-day number people are talking about is a re-activation attempt that your PC will perform every 30 days. While your machine can not communicate with the KMS server, it will remain activated for 180 days.
After Activation, is there Anything Else I Should Do?
It is strongly recommended that you remove the defunct server�s host from your machine. This can be done by opening a Command Prompt as Administrator and run: �slmgr /ckms�
