The following error is being received "Installation of the Proof of Purchase from the ACPI table failed. Error code: 0xC004F057".
This issue can occur due to the build process and key used when initially building the system at the factory.
It appears to only occur with Windows Server 2012 and 2012 R2.
The solution is to re-register with the product key received when purchasing the server. This can be done by using slgmgr.vbs
The following will be done from an administrative command prompt
Enter slmgr /upk
A prompt will appear stating the product key was uninstalled.
Enter slmgr /cpky
A prompt will appear stating the key was cleared from the registry.
Enter slmgr /rearm
A prompt will appear saying the command was successful and a reboot is needed.
Reboot the system.
Upon logging back into the system after a reboot, enter your product key using slmgr /ipk <product key here>.
To activate windows use slmgr /ato.
The error should no longer occur on the system and you should now be activated with the proper license key.
