Can't activate after upgrading Windows 8 RC to Windows 8 RTM

Q

I upgraded from Windows 8 RC to Windows 8 RTM. Because I have an SSD, I'm unable to do a clean install (the boot is too fast to hit f8, and I don't have an UEFA device), but there is no way to activate (I cannot change the product key in System -> View Details in Windows Activatation, and the only phone number I can get for activating by phone is for Afghanistan). How do I activate Windows?

Right click the left hand corner of your Windows 8 screen
Click Command Prompt (Admin)
At the command prompt, type:
slmgr.vbs -ipk
Hit Enter on your keyboard, then type:
slmgr.vbs -ato
