Now when I try to activate Win8, I get the following error: Error Code: 0x8007007B

Q

installed my Win8 RP using USB as a second OS on my PC. The original OS is Win7, on volume C and the Win8 lies on volume D.
Now when I try to activate Win8, I get the following error:
Error Code:

0x8007007B
The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.
Is that because I installed my Win8 on volume D?
