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?

Try to update it first and see if it helps and make wga is installed.

If not, the other option is to use the phone option, bt it may cost you in terms of airtime.
