  1. Activating Win10 - Do not have an activation server


    I had to reset my Windows 10 PC because of software problems. During the installation process I was asked for a Microsoft Username and Password, so I used my Office365 account. We are using Office 365 in a small office setup with 3 employees, without ANY servers or other hardware.


    Now Win10 is forcing all sorts of "corporate" IT Policies on me, like a PIN Code instead of a Password and now that I cannot activate my Win10 installation because the "my PC cannot reach the organization activation server".


    This is really annoying, how do I activate the PC? I really hope someone can help?


    Thanks in advance

    :)

    Activation options for Win10 with instant clones

    We have a secure (no internet access) lab environment setup to test and validate a VMWare VDI deployment of Win10 clients.

    Our issue is activation of the Win10 clients as they require re-activation every time we logoff and back on because we are using instant clones.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on the best way to resolve this? Here are the options we are considering and issues as we understand them:

    • Setup a KMS server
      • Requires a Volume license, which is doable
      • Documentation says we must have a minimum of 25 hosts, we don' have that in our lab
    • Use our MSDN account
      • No support for Win10 KMS license
      • No support for MKS activation
    • Manually activate each time
      • Gonna spend a lot of time on the phone Activating Win10 - Do not have an activation server :(
      • Win10 has no grace period so machines are crippled w/o activation
    Anyone have a thought or suggestions? I'm hoping I missed something.

    Thanks

    Activating Win10 - Do not have an activation server

    Activate Win10

    After an update recently I got a message to activate Win10. It had been activated for all the time I have owned this computer,. When I go out to try activating to get rid of the message i get the following:

    I have a personal computer at home, I do not have an activation server, I am not member of an organization and do have no relief from troubleshooting. I am not buying another copy of Win10 to fix this problem.
