    Re-activating Windows 10 Error code: 0xC004F025


    I upgraded my motherboard and CPU, and now apparently my Windows 10 is no longer "active".


    I had Windows 7 on the PC originally, did a free upgrade to Windows 10 way back. I don't know what my original Windows 7 product key was, and it only shows the last 5 digits of my key on the Activation page in Settings. It does show my product ID though.


    When I try and do the Troubleshooting steps, the following happens:


    - On the activation page, click Troubleshoot.

    - I then click "I changed hardware on this device recently"

    - It brings up a device list, and my computer is listed, so I select it, and hit activate.

    - I then get a screen that says "We can’t reactivate Windows on this device. Try again later."

    I checked my device listings, and it seems there are two machines named "alex" on my list. One says "PC" underneath, and based on it's last check for updates, is my machine BEFORE I upgraded the hardware. The other "alex" says "MS-7B87" underneath, which a quick search shows is my current motherboard. I'm not sure if that's what's causing the issue, but I thought it might be worth mentioning. I don't want to risk removing one or the other, since one could very well be what I need to reactivate my Windows.

    I downloaded ShowKeyPlus, and now have my original Windows 7 key.

    :)

    Windows 10 Activation Error Code: 0xC004F025


    So I'm having issues with activating Windows 10 at the moment. I had it running on my old rig but recently built a new one. I bought Windows 10 Home back in 2018.
    Re-activating Windows 10 Error code: 0xC004F025 [​IMG]

    At least it should be the Home version. However right now it's showing as Windows 10 Enterprise. I don't know if that's the same thing and honestly not sure if that's what it was before.
