    Windows 10 activation problem due to unsuccessful install of updates


    Hi,


    I have a genuine windows 10 os bought almost an year back. Recently I have got updates to install on it after which I am getting windows is not activated. When I troubleshoot the problem it is showing error code: 0x80004005 and while I try to install the updates it shows 'we could not complete the updates, undoing changes do not turn off your computer'. I tried many solutions shown in internet but none of them succeeded, I do not have the product key with me right now to activate either. Kindly give me a solution for this. Thanks

    :)

  2. New install Windows 10 (issue solved)

    It's good that you're not experiencing any issues. Unfortunately many folks are, a quick Google search will show the same info im offering the OP.

    Heres a couple examples:

    Here

    It's basically what I mentioned above, small issues here and there ,but nothing to end your day.. for the most part.

    I know it's anecdotal, but for my experience 95% of the time it's perfectly fine. The issues I've run into wouldn't be enough for me to roll back , but they would be enough (had I not installed it yet) ,to avoid it for another couple weeks which is why I'm suggesting it to the OP

    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.

    Installing Windows 10 using Windows 7 key

    Nope, you need to install Windows 10 first and make sure the Windows 7 key is transferred to your Windows account after you've installed Windows 10 (not quite sure how that works). I missed the last step and I could not activate Windows 10 after a re-install... Microsoft seem to have done everything they can to make it a PITA. Also, it's technically too late to do this now anyhow, as the upgrade offer has expired. But KMSPico works quite well...

    As for getting rid of Windows, delete the Windows folder.
