    Activating Build 9926 with windows 8 retail key.


    I'm not sure if this means anything at this early stage, but Windows 10 not only accepts Win8 keys for installation but one can also activate with it.

    What type of key?
    The supported keys list above are for installation but I have tested activation sucessfully with both Win 8 Pro (which I'm using now) and Win8.1 Pro keys... MAK's are edition specific thus those are unlikely to work.

    I still need to test if core can be activated - need to setup an efi.cfg to grab that edition.

    I can't activate using my 8 Pro (retail) key on a clean install of 10041 - when I try to change the key from the default it says this..

    Mmmm... that's strange - I just activated it with an unused Win8 Pro retail key now. (Took forever before all done.. thus may be network related)

    Does WDT give any info regarding why activation failed?

    BTW : The PID of 00178-1 indicates it's a Win8 Pro retail key

    Don't know. You are the expert not me

    This is an upgrade key (from 7 Ultimate to 8 Pro) key that I bought some time ago. It acts as retail and I moved it to a VM some time ago with no problems (except I had to phone them to activate it obviously).

    After trying to change the 10041 key from the default to mine these are the results (WDT downloaded today from eightforums)

    The installed key is the default TP one I think but I removed the middle it just in case.

    Sweet...
    Keep the confirmation ID you get from robo-lady.. I'm gonna add that to WDT's restore function eventually.
