This is not an Acronis issue. I paid Microsoft actually Dell for Windows 10 Professional. Then do the proper upgrade on all of them. Upgrade ends on the 29th so not much time left. Of course your Windows 10 key is the generic key, you sure, that's not the product is your looking at? If all else fails, you can check with Micorosft to see if they can verify if the hardware you are deploying the image to already has a digital entitlement registered for the upgraded. I spend some time installing all the drivers, updates, applications, etc. It's a pain, but whatever.
However, when you clone that installation over to a completely different model, it can actually see that the model of the system is different. You can use Macrium Reflect Free in three different ways: 1. The hashed fingerprint will be different. How Windows 10 Professional physically got on that computer, in my opinion, is moot. So, is all of this correct? What Win10 1511 can also do is read a Win8. I've attached the output to this thread as out1 out2 Vostros and out3 OptiPlex.
I feel sorry for anyone managing a lot of systems that has to jump through these hoops instead of Microsoft just getting their head out of their proverbial licensing's hole and make an app that registers everything without having to perform the full upgrade before larger organizations can image a system with Windows 10. You can also then get into an image and using that image or deployment on everything. This would register the hardware and Windows 10 with Microsoft. Any help would be greatly appreciated. After deploying this image to identical hardware, Activation failed.
I understood that activation should be automatic for a machine that was already activated before and which didn't have any hardware changes. After that he had me run slui. Windows 7 now has upwards of 200 updates from the original installation. Now it's showing it's not activated! Then I used that to activate. Understanding Windows 10 activation Depending on how you get , in some cases you're not supposed to need to type in a product key.
I'd like to continue to discuss why the Vostros still work though. However, it doesn't seem to work when the reinstallation is an image. Thanks for that most informative post jp. I ran the Windows 10 upgrade on the first machine. I simply wasn't thinking about licensing, so thanks for pulling me back into the reality of the business world. It is one of the many benefits of using volume licensing.
If you are talking about the function under Virtual Box, then please consider seek help at their official website; For Windows Hyper-V, You must license the software running on each of the guest virtual machines according to their operating system requirements. Since the validity of the license has already been confirmed, any future install will check with the central registration servers at Microsoft, find your hardware, and allow clean installation. Yes, that is true, but that isn't a physical license or file is it? Windows 10 will activate upon one of three conditions: 1. Maybe something similar exists for Windows 10. It was a hardware change.
If so, the reason you had trouble is because the new machine didn't have digital entitlement to Windows 10. I had an issue where a motherboard failed and a pulled the hard drive and put it in an identical machine. . Please try updating and see if it helps. The error from the gui menu is much more wordy, but basically says it failed. This is just the first time I have ever seen anything like this. Thanks for taking the time to provide a detailed response.
I know if hardware changes will be an issue. After imaging a ThinkPad that received its Windows 10 Pro via Windows Update, I customized it according to our environment and created an image using Acronis Snap Deploy 5. You will have four tabs - Contacts, Licenses, Product Keys, and Order Confirmation. I've tried the slui program to remove the licence but that just removes the key and asks for a new one. Again, the edition of has to match the edition of Windows that the product key is for. Moving a hard drive between identical towers or laptops is something that I have personally done hundreds of times without issue without having to re-sysprep or reactivate on both windows 7 machines and windows 10 prior to 1703.
Also, most times if you are replacing a piece of hardware with a duplicate piece, this error isn't triggered, only if you replace with something different. For the master image machine, here is what I had done. It's quite adept at that, and that functionality is quite handy because you don't have to keep several images maintained anymore. This is usually painless, but you can't do it online. I was just reading a thread on that this morning. To fix this, you'll need to go back to your previous version of Windows, make sure the previous version is activated, and then upgrade to Windows 10.
