I was given a HP all in one. I did a factory reset and after it was done it said that Windows couldn't be activated because it couldn't connect to organization activation server. How do I connect or get around/rid of it?

I think there may be an issue going on today with Microsoft's activation servers. I've been taking Win 7 machines, re-imaging them, and getting them ready for sale/disposal. Each time I tried to activate the key after first-time input, it would balk at it and I'd have to paste in the key again.

Also, you should bear in mind this issue which has been affecting Win 10 Pro PCs. We've had troubles with this on our domain; however, hitting the Troubleshoot button usually fixes it.

Ok. Ill try the troubleshoot button. There is an activation key on back of computer but it says Windows 7 pro ao. Should I try to put that in if troubleshoot doesn't work?

I used the troubleshoot button and it worked. Now it says Windows is activated with a digital license. Thanks for the help.
