Windows 8 bootcamp - activation key not working
I installed windows 8 pro (60 EUR) on my iMac yesterday via bootcamp. Everything works fine except the product key that came with the disk and allowed me to install windows 8 does not work for the activation with Microsoft?
Does anyone know why and what I need to do

what did u end up having to do?
I then installed it on my mac mini using usb stick and parallels 8 with no problem using the activation key microsoft emailed me. it is running fine but i was playing around and clicked on the flag on the menu bar and one of the messages asked for the activation key again, i entered it and it says it is only good for upgrades. It still works.
My question is is microsoft gonna disable it like they would a trial after a couple of weeks? I guess i want be able to get updates etc.?

upgrade keys cannot be used for a clean install. However, google is your friend
