Thanks for posting that link to Windows 8 Enterprise. From what I read, Enterprise has more business-related stuff in it, but it can't be installed over Windows 7 - Professional can.  Then again, on installation Enterprise doesn't ask for a key, Professional does. In fact, in the activation text file that comes with the copies I leeched, there's an additional line with the key for Pro that isn't needed on Enterprise. I should note that this is just an installation key, not to be confused with activation.

I've seen some activators on the torrents, but I haven't tested them just yet.

Another important thing to keep in mind. According to PC World, there's no need to wait until Oct 26th. The RTM copy that's already out (and on the torrents) is indistinguishable from the one which they'll start selling to the general public on the 26th, barring some Windows updates along the way.

I Have Tested Them All. They're All Fake. As All The KMS Servers Are Offline.

Have you tried simply typing in that activation command at the command prompt? I'm referring to this:

Open command promt as admin

If you are using Pro, type these lines ONE BY ONE!
slmgr -ipk NG4HW-VH26C-733KW-K6F98-J8CK4
slmgr /skms kms-c.no-ip.org:1688
slmgr.vbs -ato

If you are using Enterprise:
slmgr.vbs -ipk NG4HW-VH26C-733KW-K6F98-J8CK4
slmgr /skms kms-c.no-ip.org:1688
slmgr /ato
slmgr /dli


One guy reported he got activation until 2/2/2013.

Incidentally, are you testing this on your primary computer or do have a secondary one for tests?

Yes. That Can Be Used. But Only If KMS Is Online.

Actually A Secondary PC. [Not A Laptop]

Maher:
Thanks bro for starting the topic.

By the way, I'm already using Windows 8! Couldn't wait till October :)
I also managed to activate it by phone (Search Google: activate windows 8 by phone).
Although I think it isn't possible now. Anyway, you might want to give it a try.

@Humb
The way you mentioned is called KMS activation.
It activates Windows for 180 days, then you need to activate it again.
To activate using KMS you need a working KMS server (like: kms-c.no-ip.org:1688).
Anyhow, all leaked servers are now offline.
