    MANY ERRORS ACTIVATING WINDOWS 10. No KMS contacted


    Hi,

    Last night I installed windows 10 home premium. This morning when I went on my PC, windows hadn't been activated!! I have tried activating manually and by entering my key but none of it has been any use. I have tried the various "slmgr" commands in cmd they were no use either. Please can someone it's has caused a lot of stress. Additional information can be provided if needed.

    :)

  2. windows 10 lcense problem

    it's looking for a KMS server and not finding it

    KMS licenses are required to contact the KMS server at the specified interval

    > KMS activations are valid for 180 days then the KMS server must be contacted again to renew the activation status

    I recently upgraded from windows 7 to windows 10 Pro. But after the upgrade, windows 10 is not activated and gives the reason Error code: 0xC004F074 No KMS Could be contacted. Could anyone provide a fix.

    Thanks

    Did you do a clean install or an upgrade from a previous windows, eg 7 or 8.1?

    If you did an upgrade you don't need to enter a key but instead need to skip that.

    If you did an upgrade then a clean install you can also skip the part were you need to enter a key.

    Because windows checks your pc and uses that to activate your windows 10 instead of giving a new key.

    And during that upgrade did you enter a key or did you skip that part?

    There are several ways to proceed from your situation but I'm not exp enough to tell what is best. You can wait for someone else to comment on what to do or proceed below;


    Basically it comes down to this:
    You need to revert to your windows 7 or windows 8.1

    Did you make a backup before upgrading?

    If not see:

    How to downgrade Windows 10: Uninstall Win 10 & reinstall Windows 7, 8 - How-To - PC Advisor

    Once your back on your old OS you then proceed to upgrade but this time SKIP the part were you enter a key.
