Windows 10: Windows 10 Activation Error Code: 0x8007007B

    Windows 10 Activation Error Code: 0x8007007B


    I upgraded from 8.1 on Dell XPS 8700 and the download and installation completed flawlessly. I did a winver and it shows Windows 10 Build 10240.

    However, it will not validate, showing the error below.
    "The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect. (Error code: 0x8007007B)"

    I also ran software that returned the following information.

    "Windows Product Key Information
    Product Name: Windows 10 Home
    Product ID: 00326-30000-00001-AA668
    Installed Key: TX9XD-98N7V-6WMQ6-BX7FG-H8Q99
    OEM Key: *****-*****-*****-*****-HFQ2D
    OEM Edition: Win 8.1 RTM Core OEM:DM

    What am I missing? Or is it really a Windows Activation Server Issue?

    OS is great, everything works fine with it.

    Thanks,
    Bruce

    My problem is fixed. I ran a system restore that apparently was created with the W10 installation and everything sorted itself like magic. I probably got lucky.

    Good luck.

    I should have been clearer. I just used a restore point, not a complete system restore.
