MAK Not activating Windows

12/14/2017 940 views
Hello, I have tried this many ways and windows activation is my main hang that is causing this whole system not to be useful. My current method was uploading the images directly from MS's volume licensing site to K2000 with media manager. did a scripted deploy and was able to activate that deployment with MAK. Captured that deployment and now any new deployments from the capture won't activate. this process used to work and windows would automatically activate but is now having issues with a new image due to the massive MS update recently. Any advice on how to get this process working correctly again? how do you use MAK with K2000?

cscript C:\windows\system32\slmgr.vbs -ato

  • If this fails, time to look for other reasons.

    -machine not connected to internet
    -license not valid or maxed out
