Preferred Solution: Enterprise Windows 10 activation failed - Yoga 900

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Used the incorrect Activation key.  Will the activation key change affect the existing registrations?

So, noticed that installing the Enterprise version of Windows 8 RTM it never prompts for a key. However, once installed, the client won't activate and says

Error code 0x8007232B, DNS name does not exist.

In looking at the license key, it shows a key that ends in CWCK7. (but of course, remember I didn't input a key)
It appears that enterprise is pre-baked with a KMS key, but unlike Windows 7 there is no button to "Change Product Key".

You have to get elevated command prompt and type
slmgr.vbs -ipk "Your key"

That seems a bit strange.
Where I got the above info;
Windows 8 RTM - Enterprise Activation

A:Windows 8 Enterprise RTM Activation

It's not strange at all. Most enterprises create an unattended install that will automatically add the key. There is a "default" key that's used to install if one is not provided, but this key cannot be activated. Windows 7 worked the same way, if you did not enter a key at install time, it had a "default" key buried down inside, you just never really saw it.

Hi,
I bought a laptop (Lenovo X230) a couple of months ago from a seller on ebay. The machine came pre-loaded with Windows 7 Enterprise SP1 and MS Office 2010 Pro versions.
The laptop was working fine until a couple of days ago when I suddenly received a message about Windows activation error. MS Office started complaining about activation issues at the same time.
I tried to install latest Windows patches and used tools like slmgr/slui etc but to no avail. I keep getting errors.

The diagnostic report is pasted below. Can someone please advise on next steps?

Thanks and regards.

Volume licences such as this can never be legitimately sold and you will not be able to activate it. Try to get a refund from the seller if possible.

Hi there
Does anybody have any idea how long you can run windows 8 PRO (not the Enterprise version) before activation required if you aren't connected to the Internet.

You have to enter the product key at install time -- OK but if you are not connected to the Internet it obviously cant't activate.

Does it give you say 3 or 30 days grace before activating - or does it keep throwing up Please Activate Windows "Nag Screens".

If it throws up Nag screens this could be a real bummer as you might well want to load up W8 - see if it works on your hardware - and THEN activate. If you can't do even a little bit of testing first then IMO that's a hugely regressive step.

Windows 8 Enterprise uses a different activation method -- normally with VL products it will connect to a KMS server so I don't have issues there - and these things are Multi Activation- but PRO is a RETAIL product so it will activate differently.

Anybody who's loaded up W8 Pro tried this yet or do you all activate automatically.

Cheers
jimbo

Laptop runs Bitlocker and Bitlocker had to be recovered too after some rollout 3 weeks ago. Windows not genuine pop up window opens regularly and our IT desk tried to re-store activation using KMS server but with no success. now they propose clean reinstall which I refused as there is lot of software I installed with the help of local admin.

The cause of your problem is this...

Code:
OEM Activation 2.0 Data-->
BIOS valid for OA 2.0: no, inconsistent OEMID or OEMTableID
Windows marker version: N/A
The only solution is likely to be to get your System Admin to change the Key to an MAK type - since KMS Keys rely on a functional SLIC table to assure the license integrity.

My parents recently bought me a Lenovo T400 thinkpad. It came with Windows 7 Enterprise installed on it but it keeps saying that im activation key is incorrect/invalid. I've done some research and have came to the conclusion that it was previously used for some company that had volume licenses for this laptop.

1st. Am I right to make that assumption, and how can I keep windows 7 enterprise without having to purchase it since its already on my laptop and every time i sign on it keeps asking me about it and changes all my settings?
2nd. If i were to change softwares i can get windows 7 professional from my university but would i lose all the software from lenovo thats already on here like; fingerprint reader, updater, power controls etc.... and its ability to boot up in 20-25 seconds?

Thank you very much

A:Activation Windows 8 Enterprise VLK but wanted to install Windows 7Ent

There is no way you can use a Windows 8 Enterprise licence for anything else than Windows 8 Enterprise. You simply can not activate Windows with a product key belonging to another Windows version and edition.

With those licences you can install and activate 27 25 Windows 7, not a single more.

    I implemented USB Communication Device Class (CDC) function on a microcontroller (MCU) of
Microchip. It is able transmit data via serial port communication with PC/Laptop and always works well and quickly, but I found it fails
to communicate with PC/Laptop in beginning of August. Following is the issue description in detail, 
(1) When I plug USB cable to MCU at first time, CDC works normal like before.
(2) After I unplug the USB cable from MCU and re-plug to MCU, it fails to communicate with PC. No matter how many times I try, it is unable to work anymore unless the PC/Laptop is rebooted.
     I tried to debug the issue and found that the USB' behavior is irregular. To type ?regedit? on
the command line on Start Menu of Windows and find the following path:
  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\HARDWARE\DEVICEMAP\SERIALCOMM\
The serial comm device is always shown even I unplug the USB cable from MCU.
      My colleagues told me the CDC function failed after a windows update in early August, and not the only one PC/Laptop got the problem. So
far, the only solution can solve the problem is re-install OS to PC/Laptop .

I've recently had to deploy a new workstation for a user and after my MDT task ran through patching Feb & March patches it failed to setup bit locker for me on the Initialize TPM chip.
It's complaining that "There is no such object on the server" 0x80072030. Our DCs are Windows 2008 R2 and have had their schema properly updated for a long time to handle TPM chips and bit locker. The system in question is a precision 7510 and

I have an Inspiron 3542 laptop that I just upgraded to Windows 10. The update completed but now the device is saying Windows 10 needs to be activated. The error message reads: "Activation failed because this device doesn't have a valid digital entitlement or product key. Error code: 0x803f7001". This is a Windows 7 Pro device purchased from Dell in 2014.  I tried calling the help line but they bumped me over to a fee for service help line because I am out of warranty.  If they sold me a device with an invalid key shouldn't that be on them to correct regardless? 
Is there a simple fix to this.  It was activated and running fine before this upgrade attempt.  Should I just revert it to 7 Pro and leave it alone?

Hi guys,
I have a problem with the windows 10 activation;
3 days ago I purchased this laptop, turned it on and initialized it, windows was active;
yesterday I dot the latest windows updates, including that one that looks like a brand new SO installation with multiple reboots and when it finally ended (after more than 2 hours) my SO was not activated anymore.
When I open "settings" and click on "activate windows" I can see the error 0x8007007b; clicking the Activate button does nothing.
I found some guides googling around but before I start copy/pasting the product key they say I can retrieve using
powershell "(Get-WmiObject -query ?select * from SoftwareLicensingService?).OA3xOriginalProductKey"
I'd like to know if there's a simplier. maybe more specific for this product, solution.
 
Some extra infos about my pc and license:
1: when I first booted it got windows 10 home already installed and was activated
2: I got a sticker under the laptop with the windows logo but there is no key
3: no key in the few paper manual in the package either
4: laptop is a g50 80 with i3-5005u
 
 
I've got an extra question.
using the lenovo companion I see that my warranty started the 01 september 2015 even if I just purchased it from a phisical store near where I live and the package was sealed.
The first day I got it afted around 4hours I installed Piriform's Defraggler and looked around in the SMART section and I noticed I had 8hours uptime, so I think it was turned on at so... Read more

I have T450 came with Windows 7 pro downgraded from Window 10 pro about 4 years before, and I cannot use either Win 10 or Win 7 with this machine anymore after formatting HDD. It was being used with factory installed Win 7pro for a while, then due to the virus related issue, I low level formatted the HDD this year. Since then I was trying to use the facory recovery USB key that came from Lenovo, but the recovery key from Lenovo was actually Win 10 pro instead of Win 7 pro; which was fine if I could activate the Win 10 licese properly.  After Win10 factory recovery was done with the USB key, the activation window says that "The product key used on this PC didn't work with this edition of Windows. You might need to get in touch with the store or company you bought Windows from, enter a different product key, or go to the Store to buy genuine Windows. Error code: 0xC004C060". I contacted Microsoft, and they traced the license key in the BIOS of the laptop, then told me that "The product key in your machine exceeded the maximum quantity of PC for activation. Please contact Lenovo to get proper license key." I contacted Lenovo support, but I could not get any help from the support except telling me that my laptop is now out of warranty. What should I do here? Should I purchase a new Win 10 licese again? Please help.

Guys I need help.
My desktop pc (HP Touchsmart 300) broke down and the technician told me to change the disk. He changed the hard drive and installed again Win7 Home Premium. A fiew days ago, I did a clean Windows install, by downloading the .iso file file from the web (Microsoft's webpage I think). I burned it to a disk and I started the installation. When i asked for a Serial Number, I wrote the key, who was behind the pc. The setup continued, but when I entered the Windows desktop for first time, a message poped up saying "This version of windows is not genique"-something like that. I re-entered the serial but again nothing! What is wrong? Did the hard drive change affected my windows activation?

Thanks,

A:Activation of windows 10 home failed

Activation key is embedded in the computer and you do not have access to it. Did you mistakenly enter a key? That is not necessary. The Activation will automatically scan the computer and read your embedded key. When reinstalling win 10 you skip the first question about a product key by choosing I don't have a key. Then activate after the reinstallation is finished.

I just built a news system and did a clean install of 8.1 Pro 64-bit. Activated it without problems and did a clone to file using Paragon. Copied the clone to multiple drives to use on the same computer, to keep gaming on a separate disk. Everything worked perfectly until this morning when windows says its not activated and key is in use on another computer. The key has been used, but I swapped out the motherboard, cpu and ram and did a fresh install. The activation work without a hitch, but now activation has failed. Its only been running a few days, but I've been able to swap drives without a hitch. Is it the fact that I use multiple disks on the same computer or is it the fact that I have previosly used this key on different hardware? The key is not installed on any other computer.

A:Windows 8.1 Activation failed on cloned drives

I believe that a new motherboard is seen as a different computer by Windows. If the Registration key has been used on another motherboard, it will say the activation is in use on another computer when the motherboard is changed.

If you have an OEM version of Windows (pre-installed by the PC manufacturer), a new motherboard is considered a new computer and you can't transfer the Registration key.

A retail version of Windows can be transferred, that's one reason it costs more. If you have a retail version of Windows, you have to call Microsoft to transfer the activation to the new motherboard.

Windows 8.1 is asking to be reactivated, when product key and or activate online is issued, error message appears telling me the code is not valid. tech support has helped out in many ways, but no ways have fixed the issue. many cmd commands have been attempted
such as 
elevator cmd promp~ attempted and failed
rearm cmd prompt~ attempted and failed
among multiple others.

i bought windows 8.1 pre installed on my pc from best buy, never had problems until affter windows 10 free upgrade, which i did not participate in getting. afterwards, i have been constantly asked to activate my windows 8.1, but with no luck does it allow
or accept my product key, despite it being a valid  volume key according to the microsoft support team. 
i have been a microsoft user for years now, i have invested and bought into many products. it is a shame that this is happening, but would be greatly appreciated if ANYONE can help me fix this problem before i am forced to change OS.

My harddrive recently failed on my laptop which is a Dell, I've purchased a new harddrive and installed windows, unfortunately the sticker containing the key has faded to the point where it's unreadable, however I did manage to get a copy of the key.

Hello everyone,
This is my first post in this forum.So I have a HP notebook which had came up with preinstalled win 8.1 Single Language.I waited when windows 10 upgrade notification started coming up until today I upgraded.

Since I have a very low Speed connection(80-100Kbps download speed),I preferred to download the ISO file of Windows 10.It is Windows 10 Home Version build 1511.I mount it up on upgraded to windows with keeping my personal files and settings intact.

Now,the "activate windows" watermark is showing up at the bottom of the screen.I did tried to activate windows but it failed with error 0xc004f074.I check this website's forum and someone suggested to activate the windows by inputting your windows 8.1 product key.I found it out by shadowkey plus.But the 0xc004f210 comes up "you are running windows 10.The product key you entered cannot be used to activate this edition".I am stuck here unable to rectify the activation situation.Someone please enlighten me here....

Would post the diag but for some reason it won't copy or paste. Can't post windows update log as security settings block internet access while logged in as an admin, can't burn to CD as the CD drive is turned off in BIOS by higher HQ, can't use thumb drives as they are not allowed in goverment machines so it's turned off as well.

Anyways to the problem at hand. I am a system admin on a military network. We use windows 7 enterprise with a KMS activation. We use WDS for imaging systems. Recently after we image or reimage a machine we have been occasional get non genuine. It's not for every system maybe 10-15% of the systems.
Ran the MGAdiag and received the following results.
Valadition code 50
PID 00392-918-5000002-85131
TTS T:20150923093955402

What other info do we need.

A:win 7 enterprise KMS activation error

I'm no expert on such matters but I do suggest you contact what you call (higher HQ).

My reasoning is because this is a government military system.
If you don't have permission from the (higher HQ) we surly don't either. Their is probably military and government security methods being used that I don't believe we should interfere with.

Note to all.
This is my opinion. Not to be confuse with forum rules or guide lines.

I have recently updated my preloaded window 8 to 8.1. However, after the update it does not accept my old window 8 key and requires me to activate again using a product key. Here is the error code: 0xC004C003
My DELL XPS came with a preloaded copy of window 8 and yes it has a window 8 sticker at the back
and was fully activated before I updated to windows  8.1.  And as far as I know, system which comes with preloaded window 8 has its product key injected to the motherboard and 8.1 is a free update for window 8 users.
So why the update does not accept my window 8 key and ask me for a new key ? I know my window 8 key cannot be used for any other system because the key is injected in the motherboard and I don't even know the key myself.
So what can I do now for my Window to be activated again ?
More frustration is that I can't get back to windows 8.
I tried to reset to the factory image by using DELL backup & Recovery software built in the system.
However, after resetting to the factory image it does not accept embedded product key.

I have a dedicated blackberry server running Windows Server 2003. I'm using Blackberry Professional Software. Everything was running fine and then over the weekend one of the blackberries stoped being able to send or recieve emails. Everyone else was fine. I tried restarting the blackberry. That didn't work. I tried taking the battery out. That didn't work. I tried resending a password and reactivating. That didn't work. I tried deleting the user from the blackberry server, adding her again, deleting the service books on the device and resending the password. And when that didn't work, I tried wiping out the handheld. That didn't work either.

Basically on the server it looks like it's just stuck on initializing. On the device under Enterprise Activation it says Activating... 10 minutes later it says Retrying... but it never actually activates.
