    My windows 10 is not activated anymore and can't be re-activated


    Hey,


    I have a strange problem. My updating is acting up and my windows 10 pro is not activated anymore. I've tried a lot so far, which I will list below. But first my error codes I get:


    for my Updates I get: 0x80240fff


    and perhaps related to that is my deactivated Windows key. It says I dont have a valid key and refers to the code 0xC004F012. If I run the activation troubleshooting it gives me the code 0xc0020036. If I try to change my key and re-enter the serial, it gives me the code 0xc0020036 as well.


    Before I get asked this: no, I haven't changed anything software or hardware wise in the last time, I used the PC as usual. I suspect the new 1903 update?


    Things I've tried so far:

    -activate Windows over the phone (slui 4)

    -force activation over cmd (admin) and rearm command

    -ran all relevant troubleshootings

    -buying a brand new key

    -resetting to last update

    -updating/repairing with windows creation tool, which failed

    -tried the sfc /scannow stuff, which reported broken files that could not be repaired

    -tried everything on this guide: https://support.microsoft.com/de-de/help/10164 beside the new installation of windows.


    It seems like, resetting the PC and reinstalling windows is my last hope, but I'd hate to do that now, so I hope anyone can give me some hint what I can try else.


    Best regards,

    Johann

    How long did you wait for activation?
    When I re-installed with a fresh install... it took a few hours to sync and activate.
    However, it did, finally, activate.

    Windows 10 Activation (Insider)

    Hi!

    I signed up in the windows insider program and got windows 10 free - the windows 10 insider preview updated to windows 10 pro.
    Today i got another SSD and did a raid 0 on my system forcing me to do a clean install of windows but now it wont activate anymore.
    Signing in with my microsoft account that was linked to the insider program didnt help.
    Maybe i got this problem since i quit the insider program for several days and signed up again after i found out that my win 10 wont activate anymore.
    Any ideas how to fix it?

    I couldn't get it to work at all.. I was also told from a friend that it wasn't possible, you may be out of luck.
