    Somehow my tablet lost it's activation and now it won't reactive. It gives me error 0xc004f074 and says something about not being able to access the KMS server. This is an OEM key though. I didn't think that used KMS. Also it's the core version. Can core even use KMS?

    Because it thinks it's a KMS key it won't even let me activate by phone.
