    I tried Windows 8.1 activated by phone on a VM. Is like a fresh installation, however
    the activation remains.

    as long as the key is not on a very dark colored list, the activation remains by design
     
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...
