    Showing error 0X8007007B while updating Windows 8

    I had Windows 7 on my system. Two months ago, I installed Windows 8 Rlease preview on my system. Finally I got the final version of Windows 8. So I tried to install the full version of Windows 8. When I did this, I got an error message. The message shown is 0X8007007B. What does this error mean? How to rectify it and how to install. Please give me a brief explanation. T

    There are many problems while activating windows 8 directly

    Best method is using command prompt

    ============================
    steps to activate windows 8 :-
    ============================

    => Start your windows 8 PC

    => Move your mouse to any corner of screen to open charms bar

    => Click on search

    => In search box type cmd

    => right click on cmd in the results in left side

    => Click on run as administrator

    => Now give the command "slui 3" without quotes and press enter



    => Windows activation box will pop up

    => Enter your product key

    => Click on activate

    => Restart your computer

    => Windows 8 will get activated
