Windows activation after Autopilot
We are using Windows autopilot to enroll devices. It is standalone Intune setup and devices are not joined to domain.
For one device we are facing activation issue. It is showing error that KMS server is not reachable (0x8007007B) even though we are using MAK key. User has windows 10 enterprise license is assigned as well.
We have tried autopilot again but still the same issue.

Since I am not a professional and just a novice user, I am very helpful for such tips to sort out the problems on their own, as in my opinion it is better to do something once yourself than to look ten times, as others do it. This way I remember the necessary steps quicker.

Also there are some very usful scripts to activate Windows 10 https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/deployment/windows-10-subscription-activation#existing-enterprise-deployments
FOR /F “skip=1” %%A IN (‘wmic path SoftwareLicensingService get OA3xOriginalProductKey’) DO (
IF [%ProductKey%]== (
echo No key present
) ELSE (
echo Installing %ProductKey%
changepk.exe /ProductKey %ProductKey%
It’s a complex topic.
How you are building the Machines for Autopilot?
Is the Key taken out from vendors firmware?
MAK is not required if you are looking to use Subscription activation https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/deployment/windows-10-subscription-activation
please can you provide more details
We are using configuration policy to edition upgrade ( from pro to Ent) and activate. if it fails then we assign windows 10 E3 license to user and it works. But in this case these are not working.
you need to get more details from event logs to understand the issue ..why is it failing
Could you please let me know if any specific event need to be checked.
Information I am getting is that it is trying to connect with KMS and unable to do as device is on Internet
Any update here? Are you able find out the info?
