T460s Windows 10 Home Activation

2016-05-17, 15:44 PM

Hi all , i searched this forum for answer  but couldn't find one so i created this post.

Recently i purchased the T460s directly from the website. And after first start i found that my windows is not activated. When i tried to activate, it says theat my product key is being used by another machine and i need to enter another product key. i google some product key for Win 10 Home and tried them now the exception is try activating later : 0x8007007B. So i tried PC reset and it also didn't help. Is there any way to get my original windows 10 product key by serial number  and activate it?

 

Thank you.

Did the machine come with win 10 home initially?  On the BIOS screen, near the bottom it shows a windows license.  What does it say?

Hi, thank you for response.Yes the machine comes with the Windows 10 Home preinstalled.  I was just curious why it wasn't activated after initial setup. on the BIOS there were some id for the Windows license but it's not looked like Windows prduct key. 

Also i just want to tell that i solved the issue:  i activated it with the phone. And een after that i made  PC reset again: windows shows that it is activated.

For those who need to retrieve Windows product key  from  BIOS i was using instructions on this link: http://www.nextofwindows.com/how-to-retrieve-windows-8-oem-product-key-from-bios

I was asking to see the stuff on the BIOS screen - not the license key
