Windows 8 Pro with media centre is activated yet the watermark remains visible
Hi all

I recently opted for the Windows Media Centre Upgrade offer from Microsoft and all went well, i got my product key, installed media centre and all was right with the world - UNTIL i noticed that the Windows 8 watermark is now visible saying "Test Mode \n Windows 8 Pro with Media Center \n Build 9200"

Again Windows is activated as it, and i quote "Windows is activated"

Help please

Aiden

Answer

Open Command Prompt (Admin) and then enter:

bcdedit /set testsigning off

Now reboot your computer and  the watermark will disappear.

The test mode is for testing drivers. You probably ran the Windows Experience Index.
