    Posted: 23 Feb 2021 at 11:43am
I just picked up a pre-built system at Walmart yesterday... all good so far, except I'm getting an activation error.  It does not appear to have been a return... all packaging was intact, window plastic still attached, everything bagged and tied like factory, etc.  I opened a support ticket, and also have tried to call (left a message :/ )

There is a code in the BIOS as I ran the powershell command to verify.  I've tried activation multiple times since yesterday.

I'm getting this message:

"We can't activate Windows on this device because the product key was already used on another device.  If you think it wasn't used on another device, select Troubleshoot below.  Error code: 0xC004C008"

Well I was trying to bypass having to call Microsoft but I broke down and did it.  It was relatively painless and it took less than 15 minutes all in.  They were able to activate it (thankfully) so I'm good now.
