    Windows not activated


    Hello

    I was forced into reinstalling Windows 10 Tech. preview last night. Installation run smooth, but im now stuck back at build 9879, and worn't update. I think this may be because my windows build is not activated proberly.

    When i enter Control Panel > System > System I says that Windows is not Activated

    Anyone know how to fix this? I still have the key i was given for the insider program?

    I think that the support of that early build has stopped. You need to have a newer one like 10041 to update to any other build.

    I can only find ISO filed for 9926? Would that be sufficient?

    The expire date must be still current for the build to work
