rMPR and Windows 8 - can't activate

This is using an MSDN account to get an iso for Windows 8 Pro.

When I get online and try and activate it says:

"Windows can't be activated right now. Try activating Windows later. If this issue persists, contact your administrator or technical support department for assistance."

Error Code: 0xC004F074

----------

Solved:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/974998

"The time zone that is set on the client computer does not affect Activation, since that is based on UTC time.. "

Once small part about the time... so I changed the clock (it was off by a few hours) and voila, it fixed itself and allows activation.

Super lame that this can even exist, but at least it's solved.
