    MS Account and Windows failed to Activate. Error Code 0x87E105DC.


    OK, so I used the MCT to build a USB install. Booted from USB and was offered four options: Win 10 Pro, Win 10 Home, Win 10 Home single language edition, Win 10 Education.

    I clean installed, used my MS Account and Windows failed to Activate. Error Code 0x87E105DC.

    Google gives me Xbox results.

    Hoping that it's an activation server issue.

    I have the exact same problem right now, some help would be great. I can only find Xbox related problems with this error code.
    I had Windows 10 Pro and decided to make a clean install with the new ISO from the AU.

    Good for you it fixed by itself, but for me not. Also same error I got in event viewer from Netflix app - which instantly crash, so I extracted Win32 error code from that HRESULT, it is :
    Code:
    ERROR_EVENTLOG_FILE_CORRUPT
    1500 (0x5DC)
    The event log file is corrupted.
    So I cleared all basic event logs (right click on log, there is option there to clear log) - tada! Netflix works, and activation too ! For safety I deleted all logs from %SystemRoot%\System32\Winevt\Logs, but this requires to disabling many services.

    I think it is something not right with media creation tool because in my OS some mui files are missing and is in english in some places... I think I need to reinstall using official ISO file.

    Link to official ISOs is somebody want (is little hard to find because you need to run download site with unsupported OS so you be redirected to ISOs) :
    Code:
    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10ISO/?tduid=(ed67565a284f2b3411b52c2cc4e495f9)(259740)(2542549)(d_wp)()
