    Sysprep error - active scenario


    The PC came with Win7Pro OEM from the factory. I performed a clean install of Win10Pro 1903 and it activated itself. I let Windows update itself and I installed a couple of freeware applications. I did not install/uninstall any apps.

    I'm trying to sysprep the PC so that I can transfer ownership. I just want to remove the current account and files associated with it and have the new owner be presented with OOBE when they boot the PC. I want to keep the applications I installed so I do not want sysprep to totally wipe the HDD.

    I ran the following command but sysprep failed:
    Code:

    Error log:

    Code:
    Some have recommended deleting the "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Setup\Update" key but it does not exist on this PC.

    :)

    Windows 10 will not activate Error code 0x803F7001


    Possibly there can be the problem with Microsoft activation Server, so your Windows 10 is not activated. In this scenario, you need to wait and verify if it is the issue from Microsoft’s side. But if you are getting error code 0x803f7001, you can also try these steps:

    1. Open Settings app. Then go to Update and security > Activation screen > Change product.
    2. Type your Windows edition product key and click Next.
    3. You’ll get We couldn’t activate Windows error message.
    4. Retry steps 1-3 then type your 25-characters unique product key.
    5. Wait for the process to complete, Windows 10 is activated.
    Hope something helps this problem
