    When I will finish my 180 days activation period is there something I could do to extend it but re-install windows ?

    You can check by typing this on command prompt :
    slmgr /xpr

    There's no need to reinstall, just extend it just like when you activated it

    180 KMS activated with a tool called AviiNL's Windows 8 KMS Activation Tool.
    I've tried to change the date and re run it but it can't activate anymore.
    Could be because of the wrong date ?

    What server does it use? Maybe it's down?

    Edit: Also, KMS needs correct date, yes.

    did you try manual activation within command prompt with a working KMS server?

    I think the only way to go is to wait until the period ends and try to activate again.
    Thanks everybody

    No, you can activate a KMS client anytime and it will reset to a full 180 days activation period.
