Activating Windows 8 Enterprise and changing the key

If you install Windows 8 Enterprise Edition from MSDN you probably notice that you don’t need to enter a key. But after installation you are required to activate the software and this doesn’t work without entering a key. If you want to enter the key you have to go to command prompt  (remember to run with elevated administrator privileges) and type the following

 slmgr.vbs -ipk "YOUR_PRODUCT_KEY".
