As per the problem description, I understand that you get 0xc004f074 error code while activating your Windows 8 operating system. Windows was upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 8 pro on this computer and Windows 8 was activated.
I would appreciate if you can provide us the following information to help us understand the issue better.
Which Windows 7 version was installed on this computer prior to Windows 8 pro upgrade?
Is this computer connected to a domain network? Or does this computer work as a server?
Error code 0xC004f074 appears due to support version mismatch between KMS client and KMS host Machine or there is a time difference between KMS Client and KMS host machine.
Refer the article below for more information on this.
When trying to activate you get 0xC004F074 with description â€œThe Key Management Server (KMS) is unavailableâ€
Note:The article applies to Windows 7, but applicable to the present scenario.
