Hi there and welcome

To authenticate,Press the windows key + X and click on Command Prompt (Admin).

Type slui 3 (note there is a space between slui and 3) in the Command Prompt window and hit Enter. Type the product key given to you when you downloaded Windows 8from the software site.

It will then be authenticated
