    Hi,

    First, thanks to all the actors of this forum!

    Few Weeks ago, I have clean installed W10Pro 10240 and activated it with kms.
    I have installed all my softwares, customized, tweaked... etc.
    Everything now works fine, so I have made an image.

    Now I would like to install W7Pro/Daz + Upgrade to W10 in order to have a definitely activated W10.
    But I don't wan't to make a new clean install. I would like to restore my image and revert it to a standard activation system (non KMS).

    Is it possible? By changing the serial (slmgr -ipk) ? If yes, which one?

    Thanks

    It worked for me this way:
    1. Apply old image to the same partition
    2. slmgr /ipk New-Permanently-Activated-Retail-Key
    3. slmgr /ato

    Thank you Xinso!
    Can you confirm the "New-Permanently-Activated-Retail-Key" is ending by 3V66T for Pro Version?

    Sorry for the lack of answers since 1 month!

    Si I have tried to input generic key, it doesn't works.

    So, if someone has an idea to transfer activation from a HW activated Win10 in order to transform a KMS activated one... (same computer/ same HWID).

    Thanks by advance

    Did you go through the whole long procedure ... install win 7 on a separate disk or partition, activate via win 7 Daz loader, upgrade win 7 to 10, and then boot the kms activated disk or partition and input the generic key?

    Another thing worth trying would be generating a genuineticket.xml file (described here) while running Win 7, then copying it to the proper place on the kms activated Win 10 partition, and changing to the generic key.

    What I did was " Clean install Windows 10 Pro." it was on a Never Activated HDD, so to Activate i used KMS received all updates.
    had no issues. it is not and was not MSA.... but i used slmgr upk and slmgr cpky slmgr ckms and let it go into Non Activated.
    next day, used slmgr -ipk (generic key provided by MS) key was accepted but slmgr -ato would not Activate... but still everything worked perfect.
    next day or day 3 on fresh start up watermark still there but NO MORE POPUPS TO ACTIVATE. checkd and yes it is Activated Retail, and now Yes I get
    signin for Insider Updates. which is NO WAY. so it seems that MS will convert KMS to Retail if all keys are removed. I can not Guarantee this will work for you
    but it did work for me... (Dual Boot system) both OSs are are seperate HDDs.

    If the HDD is not relevant to keep the computer activated, why not give a try to create a Virtual Hard Drive, install Windows 7 on it, boot on it, upgrade it to Windows 10, wait for activation, reboot on your main partition and delete the Virtual Hard Drive ? Windows 10 should recognize the computer as activated.

    As I see it the VM would look like a different HDD, and like on mine.
    Disk 0 has Windows 10 Enterprise x64 MAK Activated.
    Disk 1 has Windows 10 Professional - KMS then 3 days to make MS turn it to Retail
    Disk 2 is Windows 10 Enterprise OEM

    The HDD is relevant
