    Activation requested - Where can I get the serial nr


    Hi there
    I forgot to note the serial number on download - I don't want to re-register and download again so anybody got it or can they post a link

    (Windows 10 tech preview - enterprise edition UK version 64 bit)

    Or can I just ignore the activation nag by the watermark.

    Added - I got the key from the TechNet in the DETAILS about the download - said it wasn't required but only supplied for "Compatibility" reasons. However after entering I still got Windows couldn't activate but the activation nag by the watermark disappeared.

    Note this was on an UPDATE from Win 8.1 enterprise so you might not see this in Non enterprise versions.

    Problem now solved.


    Cheers

    Upon installation, Windows will prompt you to activate. A product key is not required for this software. For recovery scenarios, the following key may be used: PBHCJ-Q2NYD-2PX34-T2TD6-233PK

    Hi there
    Thanks - I wondered why the serial was there even though the product would install without one.

    Cheers

    This serial number was included on my download page in the Windows Technical Preview site. Note that it is the same number as I saw (and laboriously typed into my password manager). Did not need it tho as my clean install was already activated without me ever having to include a serial number. Time will tell if real serial numbers will be necessary before launch.

    Yep, I did, one was for Enterprise and this other was for the usual suspects. I donno if they both would work on the non Enterprise download. I JUST had my Technet account closed a week ago too.

    I downloaded from the simple Microsoft site (not Technet) and installed from the USB drive, it never asked me for the serial. I did write down the serial mentioned above, but it activated without it. I guess it was already in the system.
