I have a valid Windows 7 pro license. I have a brand new PC where I cannot install Window 7 because the PC is too new and the manufacturer does not supply any drivers for an OS older than Windows 10.

 

The PC is now installed with Windows 10 (without a license key) and Azure AD joined. Account info says that the Subscription is active but the PC needs activation. Where can I get a key for activation?

Hi! Please see the following document:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/deployment/windows-10-enterprise-subscription-activation

I belive you need to run the activation script further down the documentation in the link above!

Thank you but the scripts did not helped.
