Activating 2019 Standard ROK on VM?

2021-02-04, 20:49 PM

Have just setup an SR630 and installed a Lenovo 2019 Standard ROK licence on the physical box ok

 

I want to run a VM in HyperV on that host too, so installed the OS on the VM from the supplied DVD

 

Windows wont activate on the VM it says:

 

We cant activate Windows on this device. If Windows was preinstalled on this device you need to contact the device manufacturer to
activate it or go to the Store to buy genuine WIndows. Error code: 0xC004F07C

 

What do i need to do extra to use the ROK licence on the VM on the same host?

 

Thanks

Hi Sir

 

Believe it because you use the same key to active the VM you already used on the host.
