Windows 8 laptop can't KMS activate with it's new Windows 7 OS (BIOS Windows Marker)
I purchased a Windows 8 laptop (Packard Bell TE11 with Windows 8 Home) I assumed like OS of old that I could blow the old OS away and install Windows 7 Enterprise. KMS refuses to activate windows and it seems that error I'm getting is based on something called the Windows BIOS marker not being present or valid.
Is there a new rule I don't know about?
I can activate with a MAK but would I be in breach of my volume licence?
I also note that this Windows 8 laptop does not have a COA just a Windows 8 Sticker with no key?
