    Super I am having same issues here can you help I have tried everything in forums keep getting error codes

    0xC004C0030xC004F009

    I have tried phone activation still get errors I am running custom new build had to reformat yesterday and it will not activate again

    Yes tried the phone activation as well about to head off to work will be back ASAP

    Due to not having enough $$$ at the time I purchased a legit digital key it installed fine when I got my system built now nothing is working I figured would comment here since I get same error codes.

    My DVD came from Win media creation tool

    Name: Windows(R), Professional edition
    Description: Windows(R) Operating System, RETAIL channel
    Activation ID: **********-****-****-****-***********

    Use License URL: https://activation-v2.sls.microsoft....tension=Retail
    Validation URL: https://validation-v2.sls.microsoft....WGA/slwga.asmx
    Partial Product Key: 46X**

    Notification Reason: 0xC004F009 (grace time expired).
    Remaining Windows rearm count: 1000

    That error combination points at a blocked key - can't be sure as you have masked too much on that dlv report.

    I assume you tried phone activation?

    Please post a WDT report - there is nothing in there other than generic codes and partial key (which no-one can mimic from only 5 characters)


    Here is report TY did I get ripped off or could it be install error this code worked fine all year

    Yes tried the phone activation as well about to head off to work will be back ASAP

    Yup, blocked key - where did you get it from?

    Chances are it was sold to too many and someone has pushed the activation count over the edge since you last activated, as even the spare phone activation count is now history.

    If you have a backup of the activated system we may be able to restore activation from those licence files, otherwise you are SOL....

    Aww man that pizzes me off lol they must of been making some good money off those I bought from seller on Ebay they have since left figures just so not right but heck was worth $20 lol

    I do have a backup on 1 of my storage drives from first day I installed it, I used 7 for so many years moving to 8 took me forever to decide on I live in bfe too so closest stores are at least a hour away to get a copy from why I bought online I heard it was much cheaper to get key that way without disc

    I was in a hurry to get new system booted in too and try it out lol

    Ok my backup is in E drive "WindowsImageBackup" 2016-02-16




    If this doesn't work how is Win10 I have not had time all year to check out 10forums can you kill all the spyware and keylogger junk?

    Suggest restore the backup.

    If it's activated, then upgrade to Windows 10 anyway, even if just to get digital entitlement before MS cuts it off...

    Win 10 is OK - I just firewall the heck out of it and only let through what I want.

    Tried following Brinks post here no avail the system image is 100% working no errors in log file
