    Windows activation problem


    Hi all! I recently wiped my main pc and installed linux on it but i still had to use a few windows applications and they don't want to play well in wine. Rather then tinkering with it for a hour or 2, i thought of just installing windows into a virtual machine. So, i got myself a windows 10 iso from ms and installed it on a vm. Now, its asking for a activation key, i thought this would just be tied into my ms account since thats how it was activated before but apparently not. I tried putting in the key i originally used to activate it but its not letting me. I would rather use a legit way of activating windows, trying to avoid going to some shady site to do it. Is this something i would have to contact ms about to fix?

    :)

    Windows 10 1709 System Restore problems...

    That seems to be an attempt at Option 2 in the tutorial, which requires you to
    a. Boot to a command prompt (Did you?)
    b. You then seem to be mixing steps 3,4 and 5, thus your command is incorrect.

    I suggest Option 1 is easier.

    If you still have problems, please repost listing each specific step and saying which option from the tutorial you are using. Thanks.
