    Win 10 (test rig)

    Activation blocked


    Is this a permanent thing now or do you think it will start working again after the 29th?

    It seems that MS has shut down activation for all builds until after the 29th so they can test the upgrade process. Some have been able to find a way to activate 10240. Search around the forums and you should find out how the accomplished it.

    My 10240 activated after a reset - upgraded from 10166 install from ESD>iso after the activation servers supposedly were shut down.

    Updates via ISO from inside previously activated builds remain activated. If a machine has already had an activated build, the hardware hash is kept by M$, so it activates after the first reboot.

    I had installed 10240 from the ESD -> ISO. This activated but there was no Fast/Slow ring option. I went back to 10166 and let it upgrade to 10240. It activated with the Fast/Slow ring option available.
