    Cannot Activate Windows With Either Key.


    My girlfriend who went from build 9926 to 10041 is no longer activated. neither of the two product key work (Neither Pro Or Enterprise).. i have even tried having her attempt to use command prompt for manual activation but nothing works.. Im thinking i could try Microsoft toolkit since it should be activated anyways (ive heard of a success story why not maybe try it)m. Or maybe just wiping it again might work?

    Are you getting nags?

    There other reports of similar problems but I wouldn't worry about it until you're pressed for action.
    I'd wait until after the next upgrade and do a clean install if possible.
    Sounds like a hitch in the gitalong............ not really a bug.
    Next week maybe on a new ISO for 10049 and a clean install will solve all your problems.............
    in the meantime keep trucking until you are shot down.

    I have made the 10049 ISO myself and i'm trying to guide her to doing a clean install since she has nothing already on it.. i hope it works for her.

    Has the ISO been tested?

    I am actually getting ready to test it out myself on my main machine with a clean wipe (as in deleting the partition entirely then remaking it to ensure total destruction of files). The files are copying to my Flash drive right now.. ill let you know if it works or not though.

    I've heard that can you spot a guy that sent a bad ISO to his girlfriend because he's walking around by himself, kicking rocks, and talking to himself.
    YMMV
    Good luck !

    Are you using NKJFK-GPHP7-G8C3J-P6JXR-HQRJR as the key? Are you using the Windows 10 TP downloads rather than something like the enterprise version?

    i had her use the same as me. (The pro using NKJFK-GPHP7-G8C3J-P6JXR-HQRJR as the key)
    Also i haven't gotten her to use the ISO i made but it was a complete success for me

    I would suggest doing a clean install from 10041 ISO then upgrading in Windows to 10049.
