    We've got an existing 2008 R2 KMS server that activates Windows 7 which works and has so far activated the 1200 plus Windows 7 clients we re-imaged and deployed this year.

    We're not deciding to do massive rollout of Windows 8 yet but have decided to dish out a few for testing so does anyone know if I need 25 Windows 8 clients to activate the Windows 8 Host Key or should it just activate because of the existing Windows 7 count?

    You won't need 25 since it keeps your existing activations.
