    Problem activating a Windows 10 on a digital Licence


    Hi


    I am having a Problem activating a Windows 10 digital Licence, my HDD went caput so have bought a new one , I installed windows 10 on it from a friends retail disc and went through the set up and everything went fine, it loaded all the updates , then it asked me to sign into my Microsoft account, which I did then it finished the download and went to the home screen .


    I then went into settings to see if it was activated, and it wasn't , it said again to sign in with a Microsoft account, so I put my email address in then the password, then it twirrled a bit , then it said I will need to enter the password for my Microsoft account a second last time, but every time I get past that part the screen just goes blank and nothing is happening , no HDD activity etc .


    So then I have to go through the whole install again, It seems that it isn't accepting my password, so I logged into Microsoft site on my Laptop and logged in useing my email and password, logged in no problem , then it is showing my PC on the page .


    So I am not sure what I can do, is there any other way I can log my PC into my Microsoft account ? .


    Cheers


    Stan

    windows 10 activation - licence will expire soon

    There are two new entries in the Diagnostic report.

    1. Activation Scenario Code:

    2. ProductKey Code:

    Both are blank on my PC.

    My guess is 1. above relates to this VAMT Step-by-Step Scenarios (Windows 10) | Microsoft Docs - if so non-volume users won't be affected.

    No idea about 2. - there are more than enougn PK entries already!... was hoping some more digital licencing stuff would come up.

    Gonna have to do some more digging and testing,,,

    to add I had nothing but problems since upgrading for free my wifi adaptor failed so I had to purchase another. then my ethernet port failed. so was forced into probably purchasing a new mb next step up from the failed one ( possibly because of poxy windows
    10 upgrade)

    Also I thought when I upgraded so called "digital licence" to win 10 I no longer needed my windows 7 disc and key so binned it.

    next step was to put old motherboard which is linked to digital licence. back in and reinstall correct version of windows to match my digital licence worked windows activated! ffixxed

    now to change my motherboard back to the non faulty one..... and try to reactivate...…………..!!!

    windows no longer activated.... and that the message in the window when trying to
