  1. Question About Windows 10 Pro Activation With Microsoft Account


    I had to purchase a Win10 Pro key for a laptop at our company. I had to log in to my company's Microsoft account to purchase the product. Now that it is activated it says that Win10 is activated with a digital license linked to my Microsoft account.


    Does the Microsoft account need to stay logged in or be used at all in the future for this laptop to keep Win10 activated? I would prefer that to not be the case as I don't want employee's to have access to this account.

    :)

    I bought Windows 7 Pro OEM key from G2Play.net for 12€ to upgrade to Windows 10 Pro - worked like a charm but be advised if you buy a OEM key you can not download the Win 7 iso from microsoft and have to get it elsewhere.

    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?

    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.
