    Hi im a newbie..

    I installed win 8 core edition because there's lots of features which I don't really need on pro and other versions..is there anyway to activate win 8 core without kj activator ?

    i heard kms doesn't support core editions....any solutions ? thank you !
    :)

    Dude, really, download the windows 8 upgrade advisor and buy the pro version, 40 bucks is really cheap and you'll save tons of problems.

    Upgrade to Pro and
    1) Buy the licence for an amazing low price of 39.99 (Better get it before Jan 31st or it'll be $199)
    2) KMS Activate it.

    DO NOT USE KJ ACTIVATOR, IT MAKES YOUR INSTALLATION A FRANKENBUILD

    There is no legitimate activator for Windows 8.

    I don't believe so. The frankenbuild files should have been replaced with the legitimate ones during the upgrade. If not, run this in CMD as admin

    Code:
    sfc -scannow
