    Issues with Activation on Build 10586

    I'm hoping someone can help. I have been upgrading some machines within my workplace onto windows 10.

    Using build 10240 I had to set the netsh winhttp proxy - to use our proxy server in order to activate windows. This worked flawlessly and would activate straight away.

    However using the new build 10586 this no longer works and I cannot activate windows at all. I get the message.
    "Unable to reach Windows Activation Servers"

    I have just been doing some testing and Its quite strange.

    I run an in-place upgrade on an activated windows 7 laptop onto windows 10 build 10586 - doesn't activate.
    I rebuild the same laptop straight onto windows 10 build 10586, use windows 7 key and it activates.

    I have done another test and upgrading windows 7 to build 10240 and then upgrading to 10586 the laptop activates.

    So it just seems as if going from windows 7 straight to 10 build 10586 does not work

    Any one know what the issue could be?

    Does anyone know if anything has changed regarding activation apart from you can now activate using a windows 7/8 key.
