Have you tried "See other ways to activate" > "Use the automatic phone system" from that point?

Otherwise enter your MAK directly

Command prompt

CD %windir%System32 directory

slmgr.vbs -cpky (if you have KMS set up already to remove the settings)
slmgr.vbs -upk (clear any previous key)
slmgr.vbs -ipk xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx (your MAK)
slmgr.vbs -ato (activate using the MAK in the line above)

As internet is not there on the server slmgr.vbs -ipk xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx (your MAK) will not work

you don't need internet for -ipk (insert product key)
you do need internet or networking for -ato  (online activation)
