I have just unboxed my new Windows 8 laptop that I bough locally, sealed. I connected it to the internet. it boots into the tiled windows but I want my old interface. Now on trying to change it in the "PC Settings" area, it tells me "You need to activate Windows before you can personalize your PC"
So I went to the "Activate Windows" option, but all it just says "Waiting to connect..." been like that for more than an hour now. I know its connected to the internet coz I can browse. What's the issue?
