    Using 1511 for fresh install and image


    On 18th October I posted about using a windows 10 image to upgrade several machines and was advised that it was not possible.

    I have just downloaded from Tech Bench (link on this forum) and the file is called Win10_1511_English_x64.

    I thought Microsoft withdrew this version, or is it OK to use. If I can use it then I think my problem with using images may be over.

    Could someone please give me some advice and or opinion. As I don't want to use is and run into updating or other problems.

    Regards,

    John A

    Windows 1511 activation fails - fresh install; "Invalid key 0x803F7001 "

    *Original Title: Windows 1511 activation fails - fresh install

    Hi

    Windows home 64bit 1511 is running, but the activation doesn't work.

    "Invalid key 0x803F7001 "

    I made a fresh installation with an ISO-stick. My product key is from a Windows 10 home 64bit dvd which I bought last summer. This is the first time I use this key. The computer doesn't have a CD/DVD drive .
