    The error code 0xC004F074 indicates an issue connecting to an organization's activation server.

    Open the Settings app.

    Go to "Update & Security" and then "Activation."

    Click on "Troubleshoot."


    Check Key Management Service (KMS)


    See Microsoft's article on Error 0xC004F074: Microsoft Error 0xC004F074

    Does the organization use KMS for activation?

    1.Make sure that your device is connected to the internet and that you have a stable connection. Use the PowerShell cmdlets to check that the ports between the client and server are open. For details, please refer to:

    2.Verify that the KMS activation threshold has been reached. It cannot be activated until the activation threshold is reached.

    Windows desktop operating system: 25

    Windows Server Operating System: 5

    3.Check that the sppsvc service is running on the KMS server. If the service has stopped, start it.

    Hope it helps.

    Best Regards,
