Method 1: Use SLUI 3

I had a similar issue. It was supposed to install pre-activated but did not. Fix is as follows:

1. Open Administrative command prompt (Windows key+x > A).

command prompt admin

2. Type: SLUI 3

enter a product key slui 3

3. Enter the product key Microsoft provided for recovery scenarios: PBHCJ-Q2NYD-2PX34-T2TD6-233PK

Note: Don’t enter this product, enter your own product key, if you don’t know your product key, then read this post: Find Windows 10 product key without using any software.

Method 2: Manually update product key

1. Open Administrative command prompt

command prompt admin

2. Type slmgr.vbs -ipk VTNMT-2FMYP-QCY43-QR9VK-WTVCK (Enter your own product key).

3.Again type  slmgr.vbs -ato (this will change the product key) and hit Enter.

4.Reboot Your PC and again try activating your windows 10 with or without key. This time it will not show the Error Code 0x8007007B or 0x8007232B.

Method 3: Run System File Checker

1.Press Windows Key + X then select Command Prompt (Admin) to open the command prompt with administrator access.

2.In the cmd windows type the following command and hit enter:

3.Let the system file checker (SFC) finish as it can take some time.
SFC scan now command prompt
4.Reboot your PC and repeat method 1 or 2 which ever works for you.
Sometimes the main problem is that the key which you are trying to use is already been used many times and that’s why the key is now blocked by Microsoft. Well, if this is the case with you then your only option is to contact Microsoft support and they will provide you with a new product key which can be used in activating your copy of Windows. Just in case don’t lose the key and never reveal your product key to anyone.

  1. I upgraded early from my Windows 8.1 Professional operating system to Windows 10 home OS being bought MS legal license from ODosta Store at:
    Which took 5 hours due to the internet slow speed, But faced many technical issues.
    Beside of, I got everyday new updates from Microsoft server, That’s why I disappointed with performance of new OS, That’s why I format it and again install windows 8.
    Last week, I read at your blog as Microsoft has stopped continually updates and now we may use constant windows 10, So I purchased its license and upgraded my OS.
    Now its working well. Thanks for providing us great information and support.
