This can be an infuriating error if you ever run into it, largely this post applies to Windows 7 (and equivalents) and above.
Running into the above error when trying to activate an installation of windows, especially if it's a volume license/enterprise edition, can be mind boggling and not make any sense.
I recently got a new machine at work and installed our Enterprise edition of Windows 8. It turns out we don't have the auto-activation file in our ISO so during the installation the appropriate key wasn't used and activated properly.
Thankfully there is an easy way to get around this.
Hope this helps anyone who's run into it!
