    I want to build an oracle VM.
    I have a new PC with UEFI I am not used to.
    It is set to the old BIOS and secure boot is disabled.
    I found virtualization by searching and chose to change virtualization from disabled toe enabled. Is this what I should have done to use Oracle's VM?
    If I click default it likely will revert to the manufacturer's settings not the builders so I do not want to fool around with it.

    :)

    Clean install of W10 not possible in Virtual Machine.


    Please get a cup of coffee, lean back and think an answer for these two questions. Take your time, then check the answers below the questions:

    Questions:
    1. If you do a clean install of let's say Windows 10 Insider Build 10525 on a totally new computer which has never had an activated Windows 10 on it, does it activate?
    2. If you do a clean install of Windows 10 Insider Build on a computer where the underlying Windows 10, upgraded from a qualifying old operating system has already been activated, does it activate?

    Answers:
    1. No, of course not.
    2. Yes, of course.

    Why do you think that a virtual machine would make any difference? You have tried to install Windows 10 on a totally new machine which has never had an activated Windows 10 installed, therefore the Microsoft activation servers block the activation due invalid machine ID. In the highlighted part in below quote you admit your mistake yourself, plain and simple, yet you when doing this wrong draw conclusion that even if done correctly it would not work:

    What you have tried is essentially the same as if you took a brand new real physical PC without any operating system, which has never had any operating system, and then installed Windows 10 Insider Preview wondering why it does not activate! Virtual Machines behave exactly the same way; if you want to clean install Windows 10 Insider Preview and get it activated you must do it on an existing virtual machine, one which has already had an upgraded Windows 10 activated. This "computer", the virtual machine, its machine ID is marked on activation servers as valid and activated and it will of course activate.

    Be it a virtual machine or a physical computer, you cannot activate a clean installed Windows 10 Insider Preview on a totally new machine. How difficult can this be to understand?

    When clean installing Windows 10 Insider Preview on a computer which has already had a previous Windows 10 Insider activated, you do not use the product key! It will be asked twice, once before the installation starts and once after the last reboot to OOBE phase. In both cases you skip the product key and your Windows will be automatically activated.

    Virtual Machine on SurfaceBook2

    Hello,

    We are meeting hard time installing our soft - does not work on virtual machine - on Surface Book 2.

    Customer Surface runs Windows10Pro on virtual machine and the owner seems to know nothing about virtual machine. We do not understand!

    We know Surface Book comes with Win10S and could upgrade to Win10Pro.

    At that time, does upgrade create a virtual machine?

    Form where came this virtual machine? Really lost!

    we asked our customer for running CMD>Systeminfo | findstr /i mod yielding the following.

    System Model : Surface Book 2

    [01]: Intel64 Family 6 Model 142 Stepping 10 GenuineIntel 1910Mhz

    Best Regards



    ***Moved from Surface Book 2 / Install, update, and repair***

    Clean install of W10 not possible in Virtual Machine.


    @Kari

    You can do clean install with windows 10 but it won't activate on Virtual Machine at least it didn't on mine. I followed the proper steps to do that.

    Again I will repeat what I did step by step with some additions.

    Step 1 Installed windows 7 retail on a virtual box, it activated without issue.
    Step 2 changed the virtual box description to windows 10
    Step 3 upgrade to windows 10 and it activated without issue
    Step 4 backed up (So I could go back to it later)
    Step 5 Removed windows 10.
    Step 6 created a new virtual machine
    Step 7 Installed clean windows 10 and it didn't activate and did that error code see below.


    @night-hawk had a similar issue and got the same error code

    Error code: 0xC004C003 with the specified product key being blocked

    Night Hawk does it make a difference on what version of Virtual box that you are using?

    My testing was done on Xubuntu using VirtualBox Graphical user interface version 4.3.26-Ubuntu r98988
