    Getting error code 0x8007251D while activating the product key for Windows 8 Enterprise

    While I was trying to install Windows 8 Enterprise into my laptop, I found the product key get installed successfully. But when I try to activate that key, the error code 0x8007251D has come up with a message saying “No records found for given DNS query”. In what way can I fix up this error?

    In the first method, you need to first press the Windows key +X on the keyboard. Then, click the ‘Command prompt (Admin)’ option and wait until the black command prompt window pop up on the screen. Type the command slmgr.vbs -ipk < product key> into that window and press the ‘Enter’ key. Do not forget to replace the < product key> tag with your product key. Finally, type slmgr.vbs –ato into black window and hit the ‘Enter’ key. You can also try another method with the ‘Run’ dialog box. Bring up this box by pressing the Windows key + R on the keyboard. Type slui.exe 3 into the field located near ‘Open’ label and hit the ‘OK’ button. Then, you can enter the product key and activate it by pressing the ‘Next’ button.
