  1. Windows 10 not activated, did a windows recovery reset, how to activate after reset?


    I had instability problems with my pc. I noticed also, that my Windows 10 OS became inactivated. I had upgraded from windows 8.1 to Windows 10 a few years ago. With instablity and non active Windows 10 OS, I dediced to do a Recovery: Reset. After the Reset install of Windows 10, I get Activation Error: 0x80004005 and can't activate. I used Troubleshoot and get Error: 0xc004f012, Says no Digital License or Activation Key. My Windows Account: Device shows my laptop is listed, I can't find my Active Key or Digital License. How can I Activate?


    Note: Using Lenovo Twist230 laptop and the Lenovo software was uninstalled during Windows: Recovery: Reset.

    :)

    Windows 10 Activation (Insider)

    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.

  3. Windows 10 Activation (Insider)

    I did a full clean install of Windows 10 a while back and it will not activate. I didn't do a clean install from Windows 7/8/8.1 it was from Windows 10 (activated) so I expected it to activate just fine since it was fine before hand.

    My Windows 10 license wasn't created from a previous Windows 7/8/8.1 key I got it from signing up to be an insider back in Nov of 2014. I installed a preview build on my laptop from the insider program and it worked just fine and it automatically upgraded to newer and newer preview builds and then to the full release automatically, fully activated and working fine. I did a full clean install not long ago (expect it to go through without issue since it was working before) and now it will not activate and I can't find any info on how to get it to activate and I can't seem to find the insider Windows 10 key.

    Microsoft online support was useless and the gave me the toll free number to tech support.. I am currently on the phone waiting, they said it could be a 1hr 30min wait.. sigh.. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Windows is not activated following "reset this pc"


    My latest rebuild was done using:
    • Reset this PC.
    • Don't keep files.

    I now see the conflicting output as show in post #16.

    Also I have a watermark on my desktop. Is this normal?
