    Might also try using a valid MAK key

    slmgr /ipk xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx
    slmgr /ato

    Hi, I'd be happy to help you out with your question. Sorry for the inconvenience caused. To activate your Windows 10 Pro, please follow these steps: Open an elevated command prompt. To do this, right-click on the Windows Start menu and select "Command Prompt (Admin)" or "Windows PowerShell (Admin)." Type in the following command and press Enter: slmgr /ipk <product key> Please ensure that you replace <product key> with your actual product key. Note that the product key should be in the format XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX. Wait for the confirmation message that the product key was installed successfully. Type in the following command and press Enter: slmgr /ato This command will activate your Windows 10 Pro. If you encounter any issues while running the above commands, please make sure that you are running them with administrative privileges. You can do this by right-clicking on the Command Prompt or Windows PowerShell shortcut and selecting "Run as administrator." In addition to these steps, I recommend that you also check if your Windows 10 Pro license is genuine by running the Windows Genuine Advantage (WGA) validation tool. You can download and run the tool from the Microsoft website. For more Information, please refer to following resource :- Error 0xC004F074 when you activate Windows - https://learn.microsoft.com/troubleshoot/windows-server/deployment/error-0xc004f074-activate-windows If you have any other questions or need assistance with anything, please don't hesitate to let me know. I'm here to help.
