Windows is asking for activation before i can personalize.

    Question

  • Windows is asking for activation before i can access the personalization settings in the metro control panel.  When I tried to click activate with the key that was already there it doesn't do anything more than try.  There is probably no fix for this now as it seems that it is trying to talk to your servers to authenticate but its getting nothing back but if there is that'd be great.

  • How long has it been trying? The servers might be busy, or down, at the moment. Try a little later and see if activation is successful.
