    @shiko2009

    Thanks for the report. It is impossible to use this key on 8. You have the following options:
    1. Use 8 & activate it with KMS emulator. You can't use your key.
    2. Use this patch on 8.1 to bypass CPU specific checks.
    3. Upgrade your CPU.

    BTW, can you please tell me how did you buy this license??

    You have 8.1 Core Single language key and activate only v8.1, if you could have Windows 8 Retail key you could have activate both. Its silly but that is what it is. Unless if there is any workaround i have not come across yet.
    However if you are able to use Windows 8 within your system you should have use Windows 8.1. best to try Windows 8.1 Core Single Edition with update 3. It is not on Windows store yet but hopefully it will be in January 2015.
    Cause there are number of improvement regarding to the driver concern.

    This shouldn't be happened; they can't sell OEM DM license.

    That's strange - that PID is not that of Windows 8.1. They are in the range 002xx, AFAIK.
