    Hello everyone, I installed windows 8 today and I used kms.cc.columbia.edu and 7pmtech activator to activate my enterprise 9200 copy. My version tells me im now activated in systems although on the desktop it still has windows license valid for 90 days. I'm confused to why. Can anyone be grateful enough to help me. Thanks

    Have you installed Evaluation edition of enterprise? Only that can be activated for 90 days.

    well im confused. I have this Windows.8.Final.Enterprise.x64.Retail.DvD.ISO. Before I activated it in the right corner at bottom it tells me 90 days left. So i figured it was retail and it gives you 90 days to activate your copy. guess Ill get this one next ("Microsoft.Windows.8.x86.x64.AIO.(16-in-1).RTM.MSDN.Original.Incl.KMS.Activator.2012.iso") do you think it was the activator programs I used or since it already said 90 days in the corner it was most certainly eval? Thanks..

    With so many clean ISOs floating around the web why would you want those AIO with KMS activators? Just search (in piratebay for example) for Windows 8 MSDN isos and check the hashes for integrity.

    All In One! It stands for the fact that All Windows 8 version (?!) are inside those ISO File.

    I use MediaGet but many are using uTorrent. Both free to use. MediaGet has some extras and special function and I would suggest to take a look at it.
