    confused

    I found several windows 8.1 activation methods in forum but which one is the best and most safe?
    (I need something like Daz windows 7 loader that was clean and great)

    KMspico
    or
    kms vl all
    or
    slmgr.vbs -ipk <KEY>
    slmgr /skms <KMS SERVER>
    slmgr.vbs -ato
    or ...

    PS : KMSpico create some processes, and would load my cpu?

    They all do the same and they they are all clean and great...

    Go with the Toolkit Activator. Can't be easier than that

    There are no "best" activation method.

    Every windows version can be activated in 3 ways, OEM, Retail and VL. (And you can trial reset windows for unlimited trial)

    OEM is sold to Original Equipment Manufacturers. It's how Daz's loader activates, but on Windows 8 it switched to online activation, blocking activators created this way.

    Retail is sold on stores, they are always online activated, no software using this way. But there was Media center pack keys when win8 is out, which is free. Micosoft blocked all of them to prevent abuse.

    Volume License is sold to big companies who install windows on 100+ machines. There must be one computer on network which activates every computer with it's "Master Key" But every VL activated windows must contact it's Master key server in 180 days to stay activated. It's why KMSpico works on background, emulating a master key server to stay windows activated. It's the only method for activating windows offline now.

    Trial is completely removed on windows 8.

    you cannot activate a preview which is activated and time bombed by using the preview key during install. Go after a full version and say bye bye to your preview.

    I have tried this with my MCE upgrade key and it doesn't work. Is the key you are talking about puchasing an upgrade key or a full key?

    Thanks.

    MCE keys are always upgrade keys (used with 'Add Features'), they require an OEM|Retail-activated Pro as precondition (at least officially). Thus you must create that ProWMC ISO yourself (there are tutorials here on MDL). MDL user murphy78 has a few pre-made ISOs on a well-known torrent-site.
