Activating Windows 8

I have a pro copy of Windows 8 which I downloaded as part of the MS Volume licensing service.  When I got to activate it I only get the option to go online and it checks the KMS.  I want to input the key but I dont get the option?

Is there somewhere else I can enter the key?

Also, to rerun activation (after the key has been changed) run the following command from an elevated (admin) command prompt:

slmgr.vbs -ato
