    Anybody else with Windows now showing as "not activated"? Also when I try to activate I get a "Windows can't activate, try again latter".

    What key was that? As far as I know, the first TP didn't need a key for enterprise or Pro - automatically activated.

    On the activate Windows screen through the charms bar, under Your product key info, it lists the last 5 characters of the key in use. This does not match what's listed on MSDN. You don't have to enter a key but one is used to do the install, it's just entered automatically.
    My error code is 0x8007007B, I'm only just looking it up now.

    In system I had "activation status unavailable". After about 2 seconds it activated itself automatically. TP Pro installed here.

    Yeah, I'm running the Enterprise version and that activates differently. You have to have MSDN access to get it. Most here will be running the normal Pro version. It looks like the KMS server address/info is messed up. I think I'll just wait and see what happens over time for now.

    Just to clarify this, everyone can download and install Technical Preview Enterprise regardless if MSDN account and / or subscription or not at Windows 10 Technical Preview for Enterprise | TechNet Evaluation Center

    To download you have to register but joining the Insider Program as required for Technical Preview Pro is not required.

    Just off the bat, what is the difference between the two?

    From a consumer's point of view the differences are marginal. Of course we don't yet know how the final editions of Windows 10 will be but assuming Microsoft continues as they did with Windows 8.1, there are a few differences. WMC cannot be installed on Enterprise, Enterprise supports RemoteFX virtualization, DirectAccess, NFS and can be used for Windows To Go and so on.

    Windows Enterprise editions can only be activated with VLK as an opposite to product keys in consumer editions.

    Apart from the WMC, the additional features in Enterprise edition are not needed by private users.

    OK, I stand corrected, I went Enterprise because it has the Windows To Go option. So anybody else running it, and did you have activation issues like I did?
