Preferred Solution: Is there any tool to know the Activation key of windows 10

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.)

Hello I've visited here countless times but until recently, didn't have any problems I couldn't solve. Now I have an abundance of them

Windows Activation Technology - Starting there since it is most annoying. Several times a day, at random, I see that funky blue and orange star in the status bar and I know the page is waiting for me. I'm running Win7 Home Premium 64 bit and from what I've heard, have no plans to check out Win10 anytime soon. But I can't make that activation tool notice stop. If anyone here knows what can be done, I would very much appreciate the assistance.

I'm resurrecting WDT for Win 10, it's been quite useful at Eightforums - but Win 10, especially with digital entitlement, has different needs.

I uploaded a beta at github for those that would like to test and give feedback in terms of what is required etc. The thing at EF was I was one of few interpreting the diagnostic report, so making the report itself more user friendly is one of the main things we need to sort out.
The current report is almost verbatim what Windows' licensingdiag.exe utility produces.

NB Office is phase 2 so that will not be a priority right now.

Hi,
Install windows 10 and confirm activation as suggested in forums. Downloaded Windows Media Creation Tool to create fresh reinstall. Ran it to create 64 bit ISO. Now using the ISO to reinstall windows 10. At 30% restore, it failed. I tried various recovery. Even did chkdsk on drive c with /r and also with /f. Same problem again - failure at about 30% restore.

Reading in forums, I discover Refresh Windows Tool(exe). Downloaded and ran it (tool) to download Windows 10.
What I dislike. No Pause or ability to use a download manager. When this download of about 3gb is done, where is it saved? How to use? Yea, automatic for I still have prior install files (programs, data folders,etc) which means nothing was done. Did restart hoping for a fresh reinstall - no changes. Thus I am posting in this forum with paragraph 1 (media tool) and Refresh tool (paragraph 2).

Went into BIOS startup and told it to use DVD (boot order priority), but instead window normal login was done and given. Thus, use window recovery within to execute the ISO.

A large number of PC users today use USB drives to install Windows operating system thanks to dirt cheap USB drives and plenty of free tools out there for creating bootable USB drives.

Back in Windows XP and Vista days, most users were not even aware of the fact that it?s possible to install Windows operating system from USB drives. The method became popular with the release of Windows 7 Beta in January 2009. Plenty of free utilities have been released since than with variety of options to help users create bootable USB to install Windows operating system from USB drive.

After the release of Windows 7 RTM in October 2009, Microsoft also released its official Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool to help users easily make USB drives bootable and then install Windows from the bootable USB drive.
Windows USB/DVD Download Tool
The official Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool is one of the largely used tools to prepare bootable USB of Windows operating system. Although it has not received any major updates since its initial release, Microsoft has quietly renamed the program page as Windows USB/DVD Download Tool in the last few months.

As you likely know, a couple of months ago, the official page of Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool used the title Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool but the title of the page is now Windows USB/DVD Download Tool. The content on the page even refers to the software as Windows USB/DVD Download Tool. Going by last edited information on CodePlex, it looks like... Read more

Hi there
I recently changed a MOBO from an INTEL based one to one using an AMD PHENOM processor -- W7 didn't want any new activation rather surprisingly. (Broken Mobo and I had a spare ASUS MOBO lying around).

However the first time I switched to using a LAN cable instead of a Wifi USB adapter I got the "Hardware has changed - please activate windows. OK it activated fine -- however seems strange to me that a MOBO change didn't call for any activation (Disks, memory, DVD device etc were canaballized from the old machine) but a simple switch from Wifi to a LAN did. !!! The internal logic of the activation process seems totally illogical and bizarre. (Running W7 x-64 ULTIMATE). !!!

Cheers

I recently performed a system recovery because I was unable to back up to earlier time before we started having computer issues. Anyway I performed a recovery. Stumbled accross this by accident that windows has 3 days before it wall automatically activate. So I clicked activate. It gave me this message header. "The Windows Vista Home Premium product key you typed is invalid for windows activation". There are 3 options. 1 is to Buy a new product key online. 2 is to type a different product key. 3 is to contact Hewlett-Packard Company to resolve this issue. I contacted Hewlett-Packard Company and they had me call Microsoft. Microsoft wants to charge me $100 for something I already own. Very confused. Anyway does anyone have a fix for this. Thank you

A:Windows Vista Home Premium product key you typed is invalid for windows activation

Hi
You have two choices:
You may either reinstall using the recovery partition, if you have one.
or
You could look for the key on the computer. It can be anywhere, including the battery compartment, if you have a lappy.
As a last restort you can try to use magic jelly bean, but I have doubts since you reinstalled.

I just completely reformatted my computer after a suspected malware attack.
The first thing I tried after reformatting and doing a clean install of Windows 7 Professional 64 bit edition was to run windows update. I received the error code 80072EFD. This is before I installed any software, firewalls, or antivirus programs. I also get this same error when trying to activate windows or office, or when trying to set up Microsoft media center.

I do have internet connection. Both firefox and internet explorer work perfectly fine.

I have been in contact with microsoft, but nothing has worked so far. I thought I would see if anyone here had any ideas.

Here are the troubleshooting steps I have already done. Please read through these before posting as you can see I have already tried a lot of things!

We don't want to install Windows 8 as of now to our office and we wanted to retain the Windows 7 Pro and Enterprise as our Operating System. Do we have a problem for Activation if we still insists to used Windows 7 Pro and Enterprise Operating System using the Windows 8 Enterprise 82 Licenses?

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.

Hiya,

I am having a problem with my windows 7 home premium 64bit. I wiped my computer to try and get a new graphic card to work( never got it working, gave up and went back to my old graphic card) Since then I have had to wipe my computer a number of times, I kept having to wipe my computer since the same problem kept happening. Which is that my windows will crash and wont work after about 1-2mins after start up.

I thought it was my disk so I installed it from a usb windows installer and has been runnign fine for about 2 weeks until I was free to do the phone activation of my windows, I phoned up the activation after using my computer for a while then after I phoned and it came up genuine (like normal) I went to get a drink befor doing more work and once getting back to my computer I opened a new tab on firefox it was very slow on the internet so I clsoed my browser and tried to reopen it and but it woulnd't open windows has frozen completely so I pressed the restart button on my case and let it boot up and then it wouldn't let me do anything.

Does anyone have any idea of how come my computer seem to freeze and refuse to work once I use the windows phone activation?

A:Windows wont work after using windows 7 home phone activation

What makes you think it is the activation? Did you go click on "Start Button", right click on "Computer" and left click on "Properties"? When the screen comes up scroll down to the right bottom of the screen and you should see a "Genuine Windows Logo". If it says something different then there is an activation problem.

Hi Gents,

Hope someone can help me here. I've been using a retail version of Win7 Home premium 64 for about 2 years now with no issues.

During that time I've reinstalled the product possibly 6 or 8 times. Excessive I know but when things start to go wrong I like to start fresh again. Anyway from memory the last 2 times I have had to use phone activation.

A couple of weeks ago I dropped my laptop and killed the HDD. Put in a new one and reinstalled Win. I've just tried to activate with no luck. I went to phone activation and being lazy I typed in my old code I had saved from last time.

Now I can't activate and when I try and open the phone activation box I get a pop up from the toolbar saying the copy isn't genuine and nothing more.

Is there a way to resolve this or have I pissed off the activation so much that I actually have to shell out for a new copy?

Thanks in advance and I'm located in Thailand if that makes a difference.

I bought a new pc and i want to buy Windows 10 Pro. I have found a very good price for a Windows 7 Pro license which will give me a free upgrade to Windows 10 Pro.

I will have the key in the following days but the pc is assembled and ready.

(1)Can i clean install Windows 10 Pro and activate it with the windows 7 pro key that has never been activated even for a windows 7 machine or
(2)should i first install windows 7 pro, activate it with the key and then clean install windows 10 and activate it with the windows 7 pro key

Thank you.

Hi Trod,
You can install W10 NOW and you dont have to activate it immediately, theres a 30 day grace period.
So when you get your W7 package you can activate it with the product key.

note your purchased W7 pro licence MUST be either System builder or retail or it will not activate

I have B50-80 80EW laptop, purchased with genuie windows 10 subscription. Recently I had a problem with HDD and it will be replaced soon (under warranty).
      So, the question is, will win10 get automatically activated when reinstalled or this new HDD will create problem regarding activation of windows?

A:B50-80 - Regarding windows activation when HDD is ...

Hi rohitSgonnade , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
OEM product key that came with your system is tied on the systemboard , so any changes on the harddrive would allow automatic activation of the product key as long as the same Windows 10 version is used to reimage the new harddrive.
 
Latest Anniversary Update of Windows 10 would also allow Microsoft Account digital activation even if the systemboard itself is replaced. 
 
Just in case there would be any issue during automatic activation , ensure the connection is stable and allow needed updates to come in . Manual activation can also be done via phone and if there would be any problems , just get the error code and have it reported with technical support or Microsoft as there should not be any problem even after replacement harddrives. 
 
Hope this help answer your query. 
 
Regards

A:how to get windows activation key

This is actually a difficult question to answer since you do not provide context. By tghis I mean that you don't describe the situation. For example, do you want to activate a retail copy of Windows which you have installed and cannot locate the key? Do
you want to get the files plus a user license/activation code.

A:Windows 10 Activation key

Hi alexxevior5512,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
As I understand you want to know windows activation key but as your system is OEM and for OEM machines activation key is pre-injecting in motherboard, you have to create OS recovery media in 16 GB pen drive and you can keep OS backup safely, If you will install OS with recovery media, it won?t be ask you for activation key.
 
I hope the above information helps.                   
 
Please feel free to post in Lenovo Community Forums if you have any further queries!

I've had OEM version of XP installed for 6 days and activated it and registered on the day of installaton. Now 6 days on windows is asking me to activate and register again with the mesage '25 days left to activate' above the icon.

What's going on?

Seems as though it has not accepted the activation.

Re-activate it. Its able to be done as many times as you want on any unchanged installation and it does not cost anything, so assume you have tried?

I purchased this laptop in July of 2014 from Micro Center. It came with Windows 8 installed. I upgraded to 8.1 and then finally Windows 10.  This is a personal laptop I use infrequently. Last week when I turned on the computer it would not boot and got as far as the HP logo with the spinning wheel of death. I tried numerous fixes and finally had to settle for a full clean recovery.  That worked well and I'm now back to 8.0 however I now keep getting the notice:  "You Need To Activate 8.0 (without it I can't update to 8.1 and without that I can't get to 10 if that option is still available). I do not have the windows key / certifcate to enter.  I never backed up or made a recovery disc. Can anyone help me with this?  I would hope that HP will  have a fix for owners like me that this happens to without having to buy an OS for get a  key. In my mind since I bought this the key should be automatically givin to us. Note: I get an error code OxC004C003 on the activation page which I think means I upgraded to 10 from 8.1 using free upgrade offer but somwhere along the way an activation didn't happen. I made no signifcant hardware changes other than installing additional RAM. Thanks for your help out there

Hello, Welcome to the HP Support forum. If you upgraded to Windows 10 (from 8/8.1) and if Windows 10 was successfully activated back then, you are entitled to use Windows 10 using a Digital Entitlement method of activation with out key. If you prefer, you can install Windows 10 and it should activate fine.More info and how this can be done , here:>> http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Operating-System-and-Recovery/Trying-to-Boot-From-USB/td-p/582...>> https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/12440/windows-10-activation  If you prefer to stay on Windows 8/8.1, please let me know how you installed it now.
